Canadian teenager Hallie Clarke wins skeleton world championship

Canada’s Hallie Clarke won the women’s skeleton competition at the bobsled and skeleton world championships on Friday.

The 19-year-old from Brighton, Ont., clocked a four-run time of three minutes 51.27 seconds to become the youngest skeleton world champion in history.

She was tied with Germany’s Hannah Neise after three runs but pulled away from the pack with a final run of 56.93 seconds, the fastest time of the competition.

Kim Meylemans of Belgium finished 0.22 seconds behind Clarke to secure the silver medal, while Neise, the 2022 Olympic champion, settled for bronze, 0.26 seconds back.

Clarke previously won the under-20 world title in Winterberg and made her world championship debut last season, finishing 10th while representing the United States. 

She also clinched silver at a World Cup stop in Whistler, B.C., in 2022.
