"If you look at our sled, it’s radically different than the other sleds," he told the Olympic News Service. "We have a lot of eyeballs on us. It’s a cool situation to be in, in that everyone is trying to find out what we’re doing."

On that subject, Holcomb added, "It’s hard to know what everyone’s doing. Everyone’s trying stuff. You can even cheat in training if you want, you can do whatever you want to do. There’s a lot of mind games."
