Historic Gold Medal for Someone Once going Blind

Three years ago,I shook hands with Steven Holcomb who was forced to retire as the top U.S. bobsled driver due to becoming legally blind from a degenerative eye disease known as Keratoconus where the cornea (outer lens) herniates out. Today, February 27,2010 in Vancouver, Steven walked away with a Gold medal, the first for the U.S. in bobsled in 62 years (last time that happened was when Harry Truman was president!) An incredible, miracle comeback of all comebacks.
