WHISTLER, British Columbia -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries started her World Cup season in the best way possible.Elana Meyers Taylor could not say the same.Humphries teamed with Cynthia Appiah to win the season debut race at the Whistler Sliding Center on Saturday, finishing their two runs in 1 minute, 46.53 seconds and posting the fastest time in both heats. Christina Hengster and Sanne Monique Dekker of Austria were second in 1:46.77, and Jamie Greubel Poser and Lauren Gibbs of the U.S. took the bronze in in 1:46.86.Humphries and Appiah broke the tracks start record, with a 5.09-second time in their first heat.Regardless of a win or a loss, I think it is important to start the season strong and Im really happy with how we performed today with two good starts and two good runs from a driving perspective, Humphries said. It is all about performance. That is what Canadians expect from us.Gruebel Poser got a medal for the seventh time in her last nine World Cup starts.Even though I dropped back in the second run, I had another really great run and I cant be mad about that, Greubel Poser said. We gave everything we had, including two great pushes.Humphries would have likely trailed her close friend and top rival, Meyers Taylor -- the longtime American star and two-time Olympic medalist who built a 0.36-second lead past the midway point of her first heat. But Meyers Taylor lost control of the sled and crashed, ending her day but escaping serious injury.Kehri and I are OK, Meyers Taylor said on her Facebook page. Banged up but OK.Meyers Taylor added that she would see her fans in Lake Placid, where the tour is headed for its next stop in two weeks -- a sign that she doesnt intend to miss any time.Even with Meyers Taylor out, the Americans had two sleds in the top seven Saturday. Brittany Reinbolt teamed with first-year push athlete Briauna Jones to finish seventh.I tried to have fun and enjoy the experience, especially since it was Briaunas first World Cup, Reinbolt said. Its the first time I really like I had the chance to be competitive on this circuit.Humphries broke the track start record in her first attempt Saturday, topping a mark that had stood for six years.She nearly lost the record about five minutes later.Meyers Taylor and Jones got off the start ramp in 5.06 seconds -- 0.03 seconds better than Humphries -- but their run ended well before the intended finish. Meyers Taylor was in position to take a huge lead when she crashed hard during that first heat, getting disqualified even though the sled crossed the line because Jones fell out along the way.Their sled was damaged, and the record never went into the books. Because they were DQed, the start record reverted to Humphries mark.Alexander Kasjanov of Russia was the winning pilot later Saturday in the four-man race that wrapped up the first World Cup weekend of the season, finishing in 1:42.51.Switzerlands Rico Peter got his team across the line in the silver-medal spot, finishing in 1:42.71. Germanys Johannes Lochner drove his sled to third in 1:42.94 -- just edging former world and Olympic champion Steven Holcomb of the U.S., whose team was fourth and missed the podium by a mere 0.03 seconds.

Mourinho appeared to be critical of Smalling and Shaw when he said after the 3-1 win over Swansea on Sunday that he only wants players who are willing to put their bodies on the line.Both Smalling and Shaw were left out of the squad for the match due to not being 100 per cent. Former Manchester United defender Neville worked with Smalling for several years while he was assistant manager with England.I find it difficult to believe he has ever been anything other than completely committed to wanting to get out on the training pitch every day, said the Sky Sports pundit at the Red Bull Street Style event, where he was a judge. So I am not quite sure what Jose has seen, but he is the manager of the club and has to make the calls he sees fit. Skys James Cooper has the latest on how Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is dealing with Luke Shaw Having worked with him for four years he has always been incredibly impeccable and trust worthy, someone I always felt would run through a brick wall, so I am surprised by that one.Shaw joined United in 2014 from Southampton but has only returned to the first team this season after breaking his leg last September.I think Luke is a more complex character, said Neville. He is young, has moved away from Southampton, and he needs to mature physically and mentally. Having worked with him for four years he has always been incredibly impeccable and trust worthy, someone I always felt would run through a brick wall, so I am surprised by that one.dddddddddddd Gary Neville on Chris Smalling He is such a huge talent but obviously has had injury problems and is not over them from a mental point of view and he needs to work on that.He is a young person with big expectation, but he is now in the spotlight at a big club, and Manchester United doesnt take prisoners. Andy Walker & Ray Wilkins discuss Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling’s future at Manchester United Jose Mourinho wont either because it will be him or the players that are going to survive and he doesnt work on the theory it will be the players.Jose is looking to make his name at Manchester United and he has to make sure he has the players alongside him he wants.Former Celtic striker Andy Walker told Sky Sports News HQ that he thinks Mourinho is trying to force Smalling and Shaw out of the club.But Neville said: As a manager you pick the players who are available to play and trust in them.They were very strong comments, he sees things on the inside and, having being part of coaching teams in the last three or four years, when you see things you are not happy with, its not always apparent to the public on the outside.
