It is official, the 50 year drought is over. The United States has not had the gold medal in mens bobsleigh in 50 years. So the emotions were high going into the second day of competition. Driver Steve Holcumb, side pushers Steve Mesler, Justin Olson, and brakemen Curt Tomasevich, destroyed the competition in Lake Placid, NY. They beat second place Germany, buy almost a full second, which in bobsled is the equivalent of winning the 100 meter dash by a full second. Not usually done. From the push, to the drive it was excellence in action. World Champions has a pretty sweet ring to it. Congrats!
