Team USA bobsledder Steven Holcomb found dead at Olympic training center

Three-time Olympic medalist Steven Holcolmb was found dead in his room at Team USA’s training center in Lake Placid, New York, on Saturday, the United States Olympic Committee confirmed. The bobsled pilot, who was expected to race again in the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, was 37.

The cause of Holcomb’s death remains unclear, although according to the Associated Press, foul play is not suspected.

Holcomb overcame an illness that almost left him blind to win Olympic gold with his “Night Train” team, the nickname given to the bobsled occupied by Holcomb and crewmen Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler and Curtis Tomasevicz in the four-man competition at the 2010 Vancouver Games. The win triumphantly broke a 62-year medal drought in the sport for the United States.
