  • From Melrose to Olympics: Steve Langton on fast track with US bobsled team

    Boston.com - 01/21/2014

    Langton’s rise to Olympic status came almost too easily. He was a member of Northeastern University’s track and field team, graduating in 2005 as what he deemed a “pretty average sprinter” on a national stage. Running at a weight of 225 pounds during his collegiate career, it was only a matter of time, he said, before the lighter athletes caught up to him.

    “I knew that was the end,” the 30-year-old Langton said. “That was about as far as track and field was going to take me. So I sought out another athletic opportunity that would speak to my athletic endeavors and stumbled upon the great sport of bobsledding.”
