than an electrifying personality ... Won the slalom-giant slalom double
at the 2006 Torino Games, matching the feat from the 1988 Calgary Games
that was also his first Olympic memory ... Finished runner-up in the
2008-09 overall World Cup standings after skiing out in his final race
... His girlfriend is a two-time medalist from Torino.

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.
