Erin Hamlin took bronze behind two powerful Germans in the women's final Tuesday.<p>Natalie Geisenberger's winning margin of 1.139 seconds was the largest at the Olympics since 1964, the sport's first year at the games. She set a track record on her first run Monday and did the same again on Tuesday, in a run that saw her top 84.5 mph.<p>The silver medal went to Tatjana Huefner, who won gold in the same event at the Vancouver 2010 Games.
