Elana Meyers Taylor won her second Olympic medal at the Beijing Games on Saturday, claiming bronze in the two-woman bobsled alongside U.S. teammate Sylvia Hoffman. Previously, Meyers Taylor won silver in the monobob.

The medal gives Meyers Taylor the fifth of her Olympic career and the most of any Black athlete in Winter Olympics history. She is the first woman bobsledder ever to win two medals in a single Games.

The duo’s time of 4:05.48 was about a second-and-a-half behind the German silver-medal team of Mariama Jamanka and Alexandra Burghardt. The other German team of Laura Nolte and Deborah Levi took home gold.

Kaillie Humphries, Meyers Taylor’s teammate in the monobob, and Kaysha Love finished in seventh.

While Meyers Taylor is still undecided about her future, Humphries revealed after the race that she intends to make a run at the 2026 Olympics in Milan-Cortina.
