Park City's Steven Holcomb is preparing for Sunday's first two runs of the two-man bobsled competition with brakeman Cory Butner.

After Thursday's training session at the Sanki Sliding Center, Holcomb delivered another round of his entertaining quotes.

"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."
