Original post made by John Naber, another community, on Feb 25, 2010

I was relaxing at the USA House before dinner, when I heard a commotion. A table filled with curling athletes and coaches were teasing another American athlete for showing off his medal. I looked across the room and saw the unmistakable shine of a gold medal, but I could not place the face of its owner. He was tall, wearing a hat and sporting a small chin beard, without the distinctive headband of Apollo Ohno. I am embarrassed to admit that I had to ask a nearby USOC staffer for his name.
