Steven Holcomb’s medal makes for home decorating challenge

Sochi, Russia • Things might be a little more challenging around Steven Holcomb’s house now that he has two Olympic medals.

Until the Park City bobsled driver won bronze in the two-man race at the Sochi Olympics, he had just his historic four-man gold from the 2010 Vancouver Games — whose display he liked to move around in his home so he never grew accustomed to seeing it in one place.

"If you put it in one spot, you kind of forget it’s there," he said recently. "You get used to seeing it there. ... It’s fun to walk in, and you’re like, ‘Oh, there it is.’ It’s fun. It’s something that’s been a long, long, hard, brutal process to go through to get there. It’s not something I want to forget."

Holcomb has a chance to make home decorating even more complicated when he competes in the four-man race here Saturday and Sunday. He’s among the favorites to win.
