The brakeman in Monday's USA Olympic bronze medal Two Man Bobsled is Steve Langton. A native of Melrose, Langton competed in track at both St.John's Prep in Danvers MA and at Northeastern University, graduating in 2005. At NU, he scored in the America East Championship meet; he had personal bests of 10.58 in the 100 and 23'8" in the long jump.

Last week, mogul skier Hannah Kearney won a bronze medal. While at Hanover High School in New Hampshire, she was high school state meet scorer in the long jump and triple jump, and participated in the USATF-NE Junior Olympics.
