Myrtle Beach's Kohn 12th in two-man bobsled

The USA-3 team of Myrtle Beach resident and driver Mike Kohn and brakeman Nick Cunningham came in 12th in the two-man bobsled event that concluded Sunday, Feb. 21, with a four-run combined time of 3 minutes, 29.78 seconds.

Germany's Andre Lange won his fourth gold in four career races inside the winter rings, taking the two-man competition to become the winningest pilot in Olympic history.

Lange completed his four trips down Whistler Sliding Center's wicked-fast track in 3 minutes, 26.65 seconds, .22 ahead of Germany's Thomas Florschuetz (3:26.87), who won the silver. Russia's Alexsandr Zubkov (3:27.51) won the bronze.

Steve Holcomb of the United States finished sixth.

Lange is the first driver to win four bobsled golds since the event debuted in 1932 at Lake Placid.

Kohn will compete in the four-man bobsled with Cunningham, Bill Schuffenhauer and Jamie Moriarty. That event begins at 4 p.m. Friday with two runs and concludes with two runs Saturday beginning at 4 p.m..
