An American Man Actually Won A Luge Medal At The Olympics

An American Man Actually Won A Luge Medal At The Olympics

That left only the final run, and Mazdzer did exactly what he needed to do to snare the historic medal for the United States. His wobbly final round opened the door for Austrian David Gleirscher, 23, to grab the gold in his Olympic debut.

Luger Chris Mazdzer added a second medal to Team USA's total with a silver in luge.

In his third Winter Games, he finished 13th in 2010 and 2014, Mazdzer broke through with the performance he had been searching for on the world's biggest stage.

West, who was 18th overall following the first two runs, had hoped to move up in the final standings on Sunday.

Roman Repilov, an Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation, was in third place entering the final two runs and faltered on his third run to allow Mazdzer to leapfrog him as well. He landed himself in fourth place after coming up short for third by one thousandth of a second, and he has two more runs on Sunday to decide it all.

"Hi everyone this is U.S. luge racer Chris Mazdzer ok bye", Buzzfeed reporter David Muck brought Mazbdzer's good looks to the internet's attention on Saturday. Germany's Johannes Ludwig rounded out the podium with a time of 3:10.932.

German Felix Loch, a two-time gold medalist in this event and the leader after three runs, finished fifth. Today, it was Chris Mazdzer's turn.

Halfway through the four-round event, Mazdzer was in fourth place, with a total time of 1:35.517 - just one one-thousandth of a second behind Roman Repilov, Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation, but it would have been enough to keep him off the medal stand.
