Kaillie Humphries, right, and Lolo Jones of the United States celebrate after winning the two women's bobsleigh race at the Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Championships in Altenberg, Germany, Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021.

Kaillie Humphries got some help from a U.S. bobsled legend on her way to making history.

Humphries is the world women’s bobsled champion for a record fourth time, teaming with Lolo Jones to win the title on a snowy day in Altenberg, Germany.

Humphries and Jones finished their four runs over two days.

Humphries drove to the title in a sled equipped with runners that were owned by Steven Holcomb, the former world and Olympic champion who died nearly four years ago.
