KONIGSSEE, Germany (AP) -- Natalie Geisenberger won her sixth luge World Cup in as many tries this season on Saturday, putting the German on the cusp of wrapping up the points title with three races remaining.

Geisenberger rallied in the second heat to beat countrywoman Tatjana Huefner by 0.105 seconds, winning with a two-run time of 1:40.591. Huefner led by 0.108 seconds after one run.

Canada's Alex Gough was third, 0.331 seconds back.

Geisenberger has 600 points, 199 better than Gough with three races left. Another win would wrap up the season title for Geisenberger, a huge favorite for Olympic gold.
