    Background: East Germans Bernhard Germeshausen and Hans-Juergen Gerhardt won the World two-man bob championships in Cortina D'Ampezzo, returning a combined time 4.54.27. The event was marred by a spectacular crash by the team from Taiwan. Tehir Bob went out of control in the first bend and raced down the track upside-down with both men huddled in it. They appeared to survive the crash with little more than shock and bruises.
