After 62 years, the Gold medal in 4 mans bobsled belongs to the United States team of Steve Holcumb, Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler and Curt Tomasevicz. To do it they had to take down a legend in the German team of Andre Lange. Lange announced his retirement after the race and will be regarded if not the best then perhaps top 3 drivers of all time. Certainly the best in the last twenty years. The USA crew lead from the first run to the last, fulfilling the high expectations that were bestowed upon them. Sometimes in sport, the hardest thing to do is to win when you are "supposed" to. These guys worked incredibly hard all year, but for most of them, this was the culmination of years and years of work. Congrats guys. You guys did it.
