U.S. hopes to bring home first medals in ice dancing, two-man bobsled

SOCHI, Russia (WHDH) -

For Melrose's Steve Langton and his driver Steven Holcomb they are looking to bring the U.S. a medal in the two-man bobsled for the first time in more than 50 years.

After the first two runs they stand in 3rd place.

"We came to this wanting to win a medal obviously, and going into the overnight I guess we're in medal position, so we're exactly where we wanna be," said bobsledder Steve Langton.

Following Sunday's race, Langton talked about all the support he's been receiving from back home.

“I'm just really focused on the task at hand, obviously, I appreciate all the support at home. I wouldn't be here - and Steve would probably say the same, without their support and their love,” he said.

Ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White set a world record with their short program Sunday.

They are in first place heading into Monday's free dance and in good position to take home the first ever gold medal for the U.S. in ice dancing.

"We're just really focused on ourselves and what we need to do in warm up and practice, and when we get out on the ice, you know we're really inspired by each other,” said ice dancer Charlie White.

"We say time and time again it's all about the skate, and that's really all we can control not the scores, not the world records,” said ice dancer Meryl Davis.
