German Bobsledder Dies During Training

A female member of Germany's bobsled team was killed and her partner seriously injured following a spectacular crash during training on Friday. Yvonne Cernota, 24, died after losing control of her bobsled in a curve on the training track in Koenigssee in Bavaria. The bobsled catapulted out of the track. Her brakeman, Stefan Grandi, 27, is in serious condition. Cernota, who came in fourth in February's world championships, died while being airlifted to the hospital.
