Olympics: Park City’s Steven Holcomb wins historic bobsled bronze
Olympics » He and Steve Langton land ‘white whale’ — first U.S. medal in event since ‘52

< Previous Page

Now, Holcomb as a chance to become the only American driver except Stanley Benham to win both two-man and four-man medals at the same Olympics; Benham did it in ‘52. Alpine’s Chris Fogt will join that effort, after pushing driver Cory Butner to 12th-place in the two-man race.

What’s more, the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation could wind up with medals in every discipline here — two-man, four-man and two-man bobsled, and men’s and women’s skeleton — after skeleton sliders Noelle Pikus-Pace of Eagle Mountain and Matt Antoine claimed silver and bronze, respectively.

"Who better to win a medal than Holcomb, you know?" Cunningham said. "A guy who’s elevated the entire program. … He’s elevated us all."
