    Background: West Germany's two bob-sleigh teams took first and second places in the world championships which ended at Garmisch Partenkirken today.

    The winning team took less than a minute on their fastest run which gave them a speed in excess of sixty miles per hour.

    A large crowd lined the steep-sided course to watch teams from Switzerland, Italy, Germany, United States and Britain hurtle down the fast run.

    Britain's two teams finished eighth and ninth.
