    Kaillie Humphries/Lolo Jones (USA) are the half-time leaders in two-woman bobsleigh at the 2021 BMW IBSF World Championships in Altenberg (GER). The defending World Champion, and two-time Olympic Champion, set the best time in both runs to finish the first day of the World Championships ahead of Kim Kalicki/Ann-Christin Strack (GER). 

    Kim Kalicki, the 2020 World Cup silver medallist and Junior World Champion, finished the day in second, along with her brakewoman, Ann-Christin Strack. The pair sits 0.34 seconds behind the leading US duo.

    Reigning European and Junior World Champion Laura Nolte (GER) and brakewoman Deborah Levi (GER) finished the day in third. They find themselves 0.42 seconds behind the Americans.

    Fourth in the ranking after two of the four runs is the 2015 and 2017 World Champion Elana Meyers Taylor (USA) with brakewoman Sylvia Hoffman (USA). Meyers Taylor/Hoffman finished the day four tenths of a second off a medal position. 

    Fifth before the final two runs is overall World Cup winner Katrin Beierl (AUT) with Jennifer Onasanya (AUT). Andreea Grecu/Katharina Wick (ROU), who were twelfth after the first race run, moved up to sixth place with the third-best time in the second run.
