one-two for Germany in the women's luge as Geisenberger retains crown

Germany celebrated a rare one-two in the women's luge with Natalie Geisenberger pipping Dajana Eitberger to retain her Olympic title at the Pyeongchang Winter Games on Tuesday.

Alex Gough of Canada grabbed bronze, but the night belonged to Germany and Geisenberger, the golden girl of luge whose title triumph makes up somewhat for the disappointment suffered by Felix Loch.

The 28-year-old German Loch made a critical error late in his final run Sunday to surrender his Olympic crown.
