Shelley Rudman of Britain set a track record to win a World Cup skeleton race Friday.
Rudman beat the track record by more than a half second, finishing the two runs in 1:56.30.
Anja Huber of Germany trailed by 0.99 seconds, while Noelle Pikus-Pace of the United States was third in 1:57.40. Calgary's Sarah Reid was sixth.
American Katie Uhlaender, the reigning world champion, missed the cut for the final heat after skidding during the first run.
"In nine years, I have never lost the chance for a second run," she said. "I really thought Noelle and I were going to battle it out for the win."
