Canadians Christine de Bruin and Kristen Bujnowski secured bronze for the second successive year, finishing 1.06s behind the gold medallists.

The crown ensured Humphries won her third world title, after success in 2012 and 2013, and put her level with Germany's Sandra Kiriasis as the only female drivers to win three world titles.
