Made his Olympic debut at the 2006 Torino Games as a 20-year-old ... Two years later, the "Prince" became a two-time world champion, pushing his esteemed teammate, "Biathlon King" Ole Einar Bjoerndalen, into the silver position in both races ... Finished third in the 2008-09 overall World Cup standings despite missing several races due to illness.
As the pilot for the USA-1 bobsled, I broke a 62-year gold medal drought when my sled, the 'Night Train" won the Olympic title at the 2010 Vancouver Games. A degenerative eye condition nearly caused me to quit my sport in 2008, but corrective surgery restored my vision to 20-20.
