The first weekend of the world bobsled and skeleton championships highlights upcoming winter sports programming on NBC Sports, Olympic Channel and Peacock Premium.

The two-woman bobsled and two-man bobsled world titles will be decided in Altenberg, Germany, on Saturday and Sunday.

Kaillie Humphries, the two-time Olympic champion for Canada, won a world title last February in her debut season as an American. No American has won a world title in any Winter Olympic event since, in part due to the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc with schedules.

Humphries, with dual Olympian Lolo Jones as her push athlete, won the most recent World Cup on Sunday. Fellow American and triple Olympic medalist Elana Meyers Taylor took second in that race, heading into her first world championships since 2019. Meyers Taylor missed all of last season due to pregnancy and is traveling the European circuit with husband Nic and son Nico.

German Francesco Friedrich is the clear favorite in the two-man after winning 11 of 12 World Cup races and the last six world titles in the event.

Also this weekend, the U.S. hosts its only winter sports World Cup of the season — an aerials and moguls competition in the 2002 Olympic site of Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. The U.S. women’s aerials team looks to extend a historic early season.

In Alpine skiing, it’s the final World Cup races — a men’s super-G and downhill — before the world championships start on Monday.
