    I hope someone caught the error in the second graf. He won two Olympic medals (Gold in 2000, bronze in 2004), not two Olympic championships. Nonetheless, he is indeed a tough dude. They make 'em tough out Afton way.

    Isn't he the one who lost some fingers to frostbite and then went out and won at one of the world championships?

    Yes, it was toes. His snowmobile broke down in the middle of nowhere and he had to hike out overnight.

    And I've noticed the SL Tribune has an abundance of typos, errors and other crap in its online updates.

    My mother and his mother used to work together. Nicest family I can imagine. He's gone through a lot before and after winning in Sydney.


    Here's a cool article on him.
