ROAD TO SOCHI
Holcomb is looking to lead the USA-1 men’s team to a repeat of the Olympic four-man gold medal and Team USA’s first Olympic gold medal in the two-man event since 1936. The three-time Olympian snapped a 62-year U.S. gold-medal drought in the four-man event with a victory at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. He is the first U.S. men's pilot to win the two-man world championships title, and is favored to medal in both events in Sochi.
