Holcomb pilots USA-1 to bobsled victory

It must be an Olympic season, because Steven Holcomb is winning gold medals again. Holcomb piloted USA-1 to a win in the opening World Cup four-man bobsled race of the season on Saturday in Calgary, Alberta, a perfect start to the year for the driver who guided the Americans to a gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. The team of Holcomb, Curt Tomasevicz, Steve Langton and Chris Fogt finished two runs in 1 minute, 48.56 seconds. There was a two-way tie for second between Germany, piloted by Maximilian Arndt, and Russia, piloted by Alexander Zubkov. Both sleds were 0.09 seconds off the pace set by USA-1. “It’s been a fantastic weekend,” Holcomb said. “It’s Olympic year, and this is when it counts. Walking away from the season opener with two gold medals feels really good.” – AP
