Bobsledder Langton's family celebrates after bronze medal

Posted: Updated:
MELROSE, Mass. (WHDH) - Two Steves, one sled, one shot at history.

Utah's Steve Holcomb steering, Melrose’s Steve Langton on the brakes and his family back home on the edge of their seats.

Langton and Holcomb with a medal in their sights make their final run count bringing home America’s first medal in the two-man in 62 years and bringing down the house in Melrose.

The Langtons celebrated loud and proud, so wrapped up in the moment they almost missed a ringing phone and long-distance love.

“He said ‘momma, I just won you a medal,’” Anne Langton said.

“After his first Olympics he had one thing in mind, and that was to medal,” Steven Langton Sr. said.

Langton and Holcomb dialing back the clocks and putting America back on the 2-man map.

“It just justifies all the time and effort that we and the people that supported us, our coaching staff, our mechanics, our teammates, have put in. Moments like this are really unforgettable and I think it’s going to take a few days for this to set in for us,” Steve Langton said.
