السيرة الذاتية

Steve Holcomb competed in three Olympic Winter Games, winning a four-man gold at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, piloting a sled he called the “Night Train” to victory, and bronze medals in both bobsleigh events at Sochi in 2014. He became a pilot after serving as a brakeman early in his career, and switched after failing to make the 2002 US Winter Olympic team. Early in his career Holcomb served in the Utah Army National Guard (1999-2006). He won the Overall World Cup title six times, and won 60 medals on the World Cup circuit. Holcomb won five World Championships, winning the two-man in 2012, four-man in 2009 and 2012, and the mixed team in 2012-13.

During the middle of his career, Holcomb developed eye problems with a disorder called keratoconus, and his virtual blindness led to depression. He underwent experimental eye surgery to correct the condition, which was successful. He detailed his struggles in a book published in 2012, But Now I See: My Journey From Blindness to Olympic Gold which also told how in 2007 he attempted suicide at the depths of his depression.
