Holcomb takes gold in 2-man bobsled, talks about his battle with severe depression
"Our four-man, as you know, is fast," Holcomb said.
But he said the two-man sled he usually uses was built around 1993.
"That's not the sled I drove today but ... at the same time, you do not take a '93 Ford out to Daytona and expect to win something," Holcomb said. "We're trying to figure out how to get faster, especially partnered up with BMW."
Winning in Park City only made Friday's win sweeter for Holcomb.
"It's been awesome," he said of the week. "I love being in Park City. It's great to be around family and friends, plus I'm comfortable. I've been here my entire life."
Now his entire life story is out as well.
"Everybody knows I had an eye disease, which I overcame. But they don't know everything behind it," he said. "It's more than people think it is. ... It was a battle."
With that behind him, and the emphasis on getting faster in two-man, is it possible he could sweep gold in Sochi?
"That would be overwhelming," he said. "I don't think it's impossible. As you can see we're off to a great start."
