CALGARY - Kaillie Humphries is on track to make her World Cup debut in the four-man bobsled next month in Calgary.The two-time Olympic gold medallist in womens bobsled has set Dec. 20 as the target date for her first World Cup race as a four-man pilot with an all-male crew.Humphries and teammates D.J. McLelland, Dan Dale and Joey Nemet are competing Sunday in Calgary in a pair of races on the North America Cup developmental circuit.They finished sixth and eighth in their first two races last Saturday and Sunday in Park City, Utah. They were third at the Canadian championship last month.Four-man is so sweet, Humphries said Thursday in Calgary after training. These Americas Cup (races) are about qualifying for the World Cup and getting to compete on the World Cup for the full season this year. Thats success.The 29-year-old Calgarian hasnt quit the womens event, which is contested in a two-man sled only, so Humphries is essentially switching from driving a coupe to a caravan and back again.The big sled can be a smoother ride if you drive it properly, she says.If youre on the right line, its amazing. If youre on the wrong line, good luck, you have no chance and you crap your pants, Humphries said.Its going to take some time and Ive got to prove to these guys I know what Im doing. The only way is to get them down safely and fast in a race-day scenario.The world governing body of the sport, the FIBT, declared in September that four-man bobsled will henceforth be gender neutral, which allows for mixed teams and all-female teams to compete against the men.Womens bobsled was introduced as an Olympic sport in 2002 as a two-person event, while the men continued to race two-man and four-man sleds.Humphries and brakeman Heather Moyse of Summerside, P.E.I., defended their Olympic title in Sochi, Russia, in February after claiming gold four years ago in Whistler, B.C.Humphries will attempt a three-peat in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in 2018. Shes won 11 of her 15 career World Cup races as well as a pair of womens world championships.She isnt alone in breaking the four-man gender barrier. Olympic silver medallist Elana Meyers Taylor of the U.S. placed seventh and sixth with a male crew in Park City and is competing in Calgary this week.In order to graduate to the World Cup, pilots must compete in five races on three different tracks in a two-year span on either the Americas Cup or Europa Cup circuits.Humphries is accelerating through those requirements. Shell travel to La Plagne, France, in early December for Europa Cup races on the required third track.Shell race the womens event at the first World Cup stop Dec. 8-13 in Lake Placid, N.Y., but not in four-man. The travel turnaround from France to Lake Placid is too tight for her. Shed rather wait until the following week in Calgary to race four-man on her home track.It comes down to safety, Humphries explained. I need to be fully switched on.After setting their sled atop the Canada Olympic Park track Thursday for their first run, Humphries said little to her crewmen as she stood still and mentally rehearsed her run. But the pilot was smiling and animated in post-run analysis with her male crew.Shes a great pilot and its an opportunity to go on the World Cup in my first year, said Daniel, who came to bobsled from hockey. The Grande Prairie, Alta., native played two seasons for the Western Hockey Leagues Swift Current Broncos.Its good for me because its my first year in the sport and its Kaillies first year in four-man so its a learning experience for both of us, Dale continued. Were helping each other out along the way, along with the other brakemen.The permission to allow women into four-man sleds came so quickly that Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton is still determining what will define success for Humphries this winter in the event.If we said were expecting her to go out and medal right away, I think thats not the right mindset for right now, head coach Chris LeBihan said.Theres still a learning curve for her. All these tracks, shes nailed it in two-man, but four-man is different. Were using this year so she can gain skill of driving four-man. Mike Williams Jersey .

BOSTON -- A judge on Tuesday scheduled a tentative May trial date for former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez in the 2012 drive-by shootings of two men, and his lawyers asked a judge to issue a gag order because of intense media coverage of the murder case. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after a random nightclub encounter in Boston. During a hearing in Suffolk Superior Court, Hernandezs lawyers asked Judge Jeffrey Locke to issue a gag order prohibiting anyone involved in the case from commenting outside court. Attorney James Sultan said the defence is concerned that Hernandez cant get a fair trial because of extensive media coverage of his indictment in the double slayings and another murder case against Hernandez in the 2013 death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. Lloyds body was found in an industrial park near Hernandezs North Attleborough home. "I think its incumbent upon all of us ... to do whatever we can to safeguard Mr. Hernandezs constitutional right to a fair trial and a jury that has not been poisoned by unfairly prejudicial pretrial publicity," Sultan said. He argued that a judge in Bristol County, where Hernandez is charged with killing Lloyd, issued a gag order in that case. Prosecutors opposed the request. Assistant District Attorney Patrick Haggan called a gag order "unreassonable" and "unwarranted," and said it not the usual practice in Suffolk County.dddddddddddd Haggan said Hernandezs lawyers were suggesting that "because of his celebrity and his public figure status that Mr. Hernandez should not be held to the rules of this court." Haggan said prosecutors involved in the Hernandez case had not made any improper statements outside court. Sultan disagreed, saying District Attorney Dan Conley had "held a press conference" after the indictments against Hernandez were issued and again after he was arraigned. The judge took the request under advisement and did not indicate when he would rule. Family members and friends of the two men filled the front two rows of the courtroom. Several relatives wept as Hernandez was brought into the room. Two women left the courtroom as Hernandez talked and laughed with one of his lawyers just before the hearing began. Locke made it clear that the May 28 trial date is only tentative. He acknowledged that the date could change because Hernandezs trial in Lloyds killing is scheduled for October. Hernandezs lawyers told the judge they dont plan to file any motions in the 2012 double slaying case until after the trial in the Lloyd case is over. But Locke warned them, "Dont consider this case suspended until October." Hernandez is due back in court on Aug. 14.
