    Germany denied clean sweep in luge by Austria’s Gleirscher

    Triumphant in all four luge events at Sochi 2014, Germany had to content themselves with three golds at PyeongChang 2018. Natalie Geisenberger retained her women’s singles title and Tobiases Arlt and Wendl did likewise in the men’s doubles, before all three combined with Johannes Ludwig to defend Germany’s team relay crown successfully. The only gold to evade the grasp of the German lugers was the men’s singles, in which former Winter Youth Olympic Games star David Gleirscher of Austria pulled off a huge surprise.

    Otto leads another German clean sweep in luge

    In a world of international competition, it is quite hard to find any sport where a single nation emerges as the dominant force. Most sports do have a group of countries who tend to do well, but it's rare that a single nation dominates. There are, though, a few exceptions.
