Bobsledders Book Tickets to Sochi

Korea secured two berths in the four-man bobsleigh event at the Sochi Winter Olympics on Monday due to its strong performance at the America Cup.

At the eighth round of the Cup, the final event of the season, Korea ranked eighth overall due to the combined scores of its two teams.
