Bobsledder Steve Holcomb on Monday gave the Legislature a golden, or at least double bronze, thank you for its support of winter sports.
Wearing his two bronze medals from the Sochi games, he gave lawmakers thanks for their support of winter-sports facilities in the state following the 2002 games, saying "the training time and the facilities are amazing."
He noted that Gov. Gary Herbert told him earlier that if Utah were a country, it would have finished ninth in the medal standings at the Sochi games. "It goes to show you have important and great" support for winters sports is in Utah, he said.
