Getting to know: Thomas Morgenstern

At the 2006 Torino Games, a 19-year-old Thomas Morgenstern broke through to claim two gold medals, including Austria's first Olympic ski jumping gold since the 1992 Games in Albertville... However, his family holds more of an alpine skiing tradition than a ski jumping tradition - his uncle was an Olympic slalom skier, and his father competed on the Austrian national team.

    Who am I?

    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.
