PYEONGCHANG, SOUTH KOREA (WBRE/WYOU) – Team USA picked up another pair of Winter Olympic medals overnight – and eyes now are turning to Monday’s bobsledding events.

Saturday night (ET) Nick Goepper picked up a silver medal in the slopestyle run while John-Henry Kreuger picked up a silver in men’s speedskating.

Now, many eyes are focused on the two-man bobsled event.

Justin Olsen overcame incredible odds to make it back into the sled.

Just as Olsen got to Korea he came down with appendicitis and had to have emergency surgery.

But he recovered in about a week and a half and has been training with his crew.

The first heats for the men’s bobsled are happening Sunday morning (ET) with the medal round taking place Monday.
