Proud Americans

In soon to be war-torn Sarajevo, a pair of twins stood proudly for all of America.

Hi, this is Tom Kelly and I'll be right back with the story, Behind the Gold.

It's been nearly 30 years since Phil Mahre climbed atop the podium in Sarajevo, twin Steve at his side. Despite the passage of time, the memory and the emotion hasn't faded. It's grown stronger. Phil and Steve Mahre dominated their support in the early 1980's.

Hi, I'm Tom Kelly and I'll be right back with more of the story on Behind the Gold.

It was opening day at the 1976 Olympics in Innsbruck. The eyes of the world were focused towards the Men's Downhill on the icy slope of Patscherkofel where Austrian farm boy, Franz Klammer, stole the show with an electrifying win over Swiss favorite, Bernhard Russi.

Golden Boy

  

They called him The Golden Boy after his improbable gold medal.  

Hi, this is Tom Kelly and I'll be right back with the story, Behind the Gold.
