Olympic Gold Medalist Named Grand Marshal


Watkins Glen International is proud to announce Gold medal bobsled athlete, Steve Holcomb (@stevenholcomb) will be the Grand Marshal for Sunday’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen. Holcomb, who participated in three Olympic Games (2006, 2010, 2014), won Gold in 2010 and took two bronze medals in Sochi in 2014.

“We are honored to have Steve say the most famous words in motorsports and thrilled to have him on-site as a VIP,” stated Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International.

Joining the sport of bobsled in 1998, Steve Holcomb started out as a push athlete. In 2002, Holcomb began driving the bobsled and claimed both the Two-Man and combined World Cup titles in 2007. Two years later, in 2009, Steven won the first United States Four-Man World Championship in 50 years. The following year, Holcomb, along with his Four-Man crew, went on to win gold at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, a first for the United States in 62 years. Holcomb claimed Bronze at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games in both the Four-Man event, and also drove the BMW designed bobsled to bronze in the Two-Man event. The prototype of that bobsled will be on display at Watkins Glen International in the BMW FANZONE display.

In addition to his Olympic achievements, Holcomb also served seven years in the Utah National Guard and overcame a degenerative eye disease, Keratoconus, which nearly ended his athletic career.

Located within five (5) hours (~300 miles) of 25% of the US population, Watkins Glen International is the premier road racing facility in the United States. Mark your calendars for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship during Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen June 26-29. Tickets are available by calling 866.461.RACE or at www.TheGlen.com. Keep up with The Glen on Facebook and Twitter. Download The Glen’s free mobile app from the App Store or Google Play.
