He didn't have the greatest all-around competition, but defending world champion Steven Holcomb laid down a blistering run when it counted to grab a bronze medal in four-man bobsled Sunday on the final day of the world championships in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
The 32-year-old Park City native drove his famous "Night Train" sled to a record-breaking run in the last of four heats, after a roaring push start from teammates Steve Langton, Justin Olsen and Curtis Tomasevicz. The Americans held off Swiss driver Beat Hefti by 0.04 seconds for a bronze medal, after winning gold in a historic sweep last year.
"I wish I could have done that in all four heats," Holcomb said. "We were the guys to beat as the defending champions, and it was a tough race. We didn't make it easy on the competition, and I'm happy with how we did."
