Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse of Canada repeated as Olympic Champions, becoming the first duo to do so.

RecordsEdit

While the IOC does not consider bobsled times eligible for Olympic records, the FIBT does maintain records for both the start and a complete run at each track at which it competes.

ResultsEdit

Top finish in each run is in boldface. TR – track record.

On 24 November 2017, the Russian pair were disqualified after Olga Stulneva was sanctioned for a doping violation.[2] After a CAS decision on 1 February 2018, the sanctions were annulled and their result was reinstated.
