Jan 12, 2014 3:29 PM

Chico's Emily Azevedo and her Team USA bobsled teammate Jamie Gruebel raced to a 4th place finish at Saturday’s women’s bobsled World Cup event in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Azevedo and Gruebel were second after the first heat, but failed to medal by one-tenth of a second.

Canada's Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse won the event with a dazzling second run, rallying from being only 10th-fastest at the midpoint of the competition.

No U.S. sled medaled, the first time this season that's happened.

It was the next-to-last race before the Americans will choose the six women who will compete in the Sochi Olympics next month.

The bobsleders will be back in action next weekend at Igls, Austria.
