Hermann rallies for 3rd straight women’s skeleton title

ALTENBERG, Germany (AP) — A year ago, Tina Hermann became the first woman to win back-to-back world skeleton championships. She’s done one better now. Hermann has now won three consecutive world titles, rallying in the final heat Friday to beat fellow German slider Jacqueline Loelling for this year’s crown. Hermann finished 0.11 seconds ahead of Loelling, who was the leader going into the final run. Katie Uhlaender of the U.S. was sixth in her final world championships.
