The Swiss men have picked up silver and bronze in the two-man event at the Bobsled World Championships in St Moritz, in south-eastern Switzerland. Gold went to Germany's Christoph Langen, his fifth title in the event.
Langen, the 38 year-old Olympic champion, and his brakeman, Marco Jakobs, posted a track record during their four runs, and finished nearly one second ahead of their closest rivals, Reto Goetschi and Cedric Grand of Switzerland.
Two more Swiss sleds followed, with the junior World Champion Martin Annen and Beat Hefti taking bronze, and Christian Reich and Steve Anderhub crossing fourth.
Langen held 0.82 second lead over Goetschi before the fourth and final run, during which the last four sleds each set a new track record. Reich clocked 1:04.03, but held the record for less than three minutes.
Annen set a new record of 1:03.69, before Goetschi bettered the time by seven hundreds of a second. Finally Langen completed the run in 1:03.49 to establish the final track record and secure the title.
