WINTERBERG, Germany — Natalie Geisenberger led a German sweep of the top three positions and further extended her commanding lead in the standings with her seventh luge World Cup win from eight races on Sunday.

The Olympic and World Cup champion was fastest in both runs for a combined time of 1 minute, 53.829 seconds, beating Dajana Eltberger by 0.195 seconds and Anke Wischnewski by 0.342 for her 30th World Cup win.

Geisenberger says, "I keep trying to prepare myself as well as I can for each race. It's not boring for me."

Summer Britcher was 0.621 back in fourth, followed by Canada's Alex Gough, 0.892 back.

Tatjana Huefner went out early, leaving Eltberger as Geisenberger's closest rival in the standings. With four races remaining, Geisenberger leads by 244 points.
