Montgomery bested Martins Dukurs of Latvia to win the men's skeleton gold medal, in his Games debut at age 30... He achieved a career highlight in 2009, winning the Whistler World Cup on the Olympic track... The Manitoba native started skeleton after the Salt Lake Games, while living across the street from Calgary Olympic Park... When he's not sliding, Montgomery works as an auto auctioneer and salesman.
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.
