LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) Lauren Gibbs won the women's USA National Bobsled Push Championship on Friday, while longtime drivers and Olympic medalists Elana Meyers Taylor and Steven Holcomb won the pilot push titles.

Gibbs started her second season by winning with a two-push combined time of 9.53 seconds. Rookie Kehri Jones finished in 9.54 seconds, and Lolo Jones - one of 10 Americans to compete in both the Summer and Winter Olympics - was third.

Lolo Jones doesn't plan on bobsledding this season, focusing instead on her plans to make the U.S. team headed to the Rio Olympics next summer.

Meyers Taylor topped Katie Eberling and Jamie Greubel Poser for the women's pilot title. Holcomb beat Geoff Gadbois and Hunter Church in the men's pilot event.
