Clukey makes quick recovery, wins

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) -- Less than two weeks removed from knee surgery, Julia Clukey won USA Luge's women's start championship Friday night. 

Clukey had an operation Sept. 28 to repair a torn meniscus in her right knee. The start title is the third of her career.

Bengt Walden won the men's competition, and Matt Mortensen and Preston Griffall took the doubles championship.

USA Luge's national team selection races for the 2009-10 season -- a key step in the Olympic selection process -- opens Oct. 21.
