CALGARY - Kaillie Humphries is on track to make her World Cup debut in the four-man bobsled next month in Calgary.The two-time Olympic gold medallist in womens bobsled has set Dec. 20 as the target date for her first World Cup race as a four-man pilot with an all-male crew.Humphries and teammates D.J. McLelland, Dan Dale and Joey Nemet are competing Sunday in Calgary in a pair of races on the North America Cup developmental circuit.They finished sixth and eighth in their first two races last Saturday and Sunday in Park City, Utah. They were third at the Canadian championship last month.Four-man is so sweet, Humphries said Thursday in Calgary after training. These Americas Cup (races) are about qualifying for the World Cup and getting to compete on the World Cup for the full season this year. Thats success.The 29-year-old Calgarian hasnt quit the womens event, which is contested in a two-man sled only, so Humphries is essentially switching from driving a coupe to a caravan and back again.The big sled can be a smoother ride if you drive it properly, she says.If youre on the right line, its amazing. If youre on the wrong line, good luck, you have no chance and you crap your pants, Humphries said.Its going to take some time and Ive got to prove to these guys I know what Im doing. The only way is to get them down safely and fast in a race-day scenario.The world governing body of the sport, the FIBT, declared in September that four-man bobsled will henceforth be gender neutral, which allows for mixed teams and all-female teams to compete against the men.Womens bobsled was introduced as an Olympic sport in 2002 as a two-person event, while the men continued to race two-man and four-man sleds.Humphries and brakeman Heather Moyse of Summerside, P.E.I., defended their Olympic title in Sochi, Russia, in February after claiming gold four years ago in Whistler, B.C.Humphries will attempt a three-peat in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in 2018. Shes won 11 of her 15 career World Cup races as well as a pair of womens world championships.She isnt alone in breaking the four-man gender barrier. Olympic silver medallist Elana Meyers Taylor of the U.S. placed seventh and sixth with a male crew in Park City and is competing in Calgary this week.In order to graduate to the World Cup, pilots must compete in five races on three different tracks in a two-year span on either the Americas Cup or Europa Cup circuits.Humphries is accelerating through those requirements. Shell travel to La Plagne, France, in early December for Europa Cup races on the required third track.Shell race the womens event at the first World Cup stop Dec. 8-13 in Lake Placid, N.Y., but not in four-man. The travel turnaround from France to Lake Placid is too tight for her. Shed rather wait until the following week in Calgary to race four-man on her home track.It comes down to safety, Humphries explained. I need to be fully switched on.After setting their sled atop the Canada Olympic Park track Thursday for their first run, Humphries said little to her crewmen as she stood still and mentally rehearsed her run. But the pilot was smiling and animated in post-run analysis with her male crew.Shes a great pilot and its an opportunity to go on the World Cup in my first year, said Daniel, who came to bobsled from hockey. The Grande Prairie, Alta., native played two seasons for the Western Hockey Leagues Swift Current Broncos.Its good for me because its my first year in the sport and its Kaillies first year in four-man so its a learning experience for both of us, Dale continued. Were helping each other out along the way, along with the other brakemen.The permission to allow women into four-man sleds came so quickly that Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton is still determining what will define success for Humphries this winter in the event.If we said were expecting her to go out and medal right away, I think thats not the right mindset for right now, head coach Chris LeBihan said.Theres still a learning curve for her. All these tracks, shes nailed it in two-man, but four-man is different. Were using this year so she can gain skill of driving four-man. Chris McCullough Jersey . - Kevin Labanc and Joseph Blandisi were a potent combination for the Barrie Colts on Friday night. Gilbert Arenas Jersey . Mission accomplished. Now the Royals will take the field on Saturday with a World Series lead for the first time in team history when they play Game 4 of the Fall Classic against the Giants at AT&T Park. http://www.officialwizardsprostore.com/kids-john-wall-wizards-jersey/ . Messis 75th-minute goal answered some of the criticism the clubs all-time leading scorer had received for his lacklustre performances in the teams recent losses in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey final. Juwan Howard Jersey . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. Marcin Gortat Jersey .ca. The NHL Play of the Year showdown kicks off with some slick moves going head-to-head with a combination of soft hands and endless patience.LONDON -- Fulhams miserable season reached a new low on Tuesday as the Premier League club was sensationally beaten 1-0 at home by League One struggler Sheffield United after extra time in an FA Cup fourth-round replay. Shaun Miller headed a dramatic winner for the third-tier club just a minute before the end of extra time of a particularly dour contest in the rain at Craven Cottage. United, which claimed its second Premier League scalp of the campaign after knocking out Aston Villa in the third round, is second from bottom in League One. But the difference in status hardly showed as the visitors fought for every ball and created the better chances against a Fulham side that is bottom of the Premier League and on its second manager of the season in Rene Meulensteeen.dddddddddddd With the match looking destined for a penalty shootout, Miller reacted quickly to glance home Harry Maguires header across goal, giving the Fulham keeper no chance. Nigel Cloughs team will now play either Nottingham Forest or Preston North End, who meet in another replay on Wednesday, in the fifth round. "If you hang on in there at 0-0 youve always got that opportunity," Clough said. "A remarkable effort again by the players tonight." Meulensteen made no excuses for his sides failure to break through Uniteds well-organized defence. "It is very disappointing. It is as bad as the weather -- the result, the outcome, the performance," he said. "That sums it up. It was a poor night all-round."
