The big guys finished their competition yesterday. The first and second rounds a day earlier produced a lot of nasty spills. No less than seven teams ended up on their side. Speculation was the weather may have had something to do with it as the ice surface was mushier and it was snowing.
In the end though, team USA 1 won gold, the first time in 62 years for the Americans. Bravo.
USA 1 team of Steven Holcomb, Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler and CurtisTomasevicz celebrate on the track.
