Park City (RWH) On May 6, 2017, the IBSF family mourned the death of US bobsleigh pilot Steven Holcomb, who passed away in his sleep aged 37. According to a press release of the federation USA Bobsled and Skeleton (USABS), the Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation and USABS on behalf of the Holcomb family, invite members of the community to a Celebration of Life for Steven Holcomb on Saturday, June 10 at 2:00 PM at Utah Olympic Park. An evening gathering of family, athletes, and friends will assemble to do a track walk at 9:00 PM, with shuttle service starting at 8:00 PM.

Steven Holcomb competed for Team USA in three Olympic Winter Games, making history in Vancouver 2010 when he piloted the 4-man bobsleigh team to the gold medal. It marked the first U.S. gold medal in the event since 1948. In Sochi 2014, he went on to win bronze medals in both 2-man and 4-man bobsleigh.

Having competed for the U.S. since 1998, Holcomb also won ten World Championship medals including five world titles among, and was a six-time overall World Cup champion.

In lieu of flowers, the Holcomb family has asked that donations may be made in memory of Steven to USA Bobsled & Skeleton for elite athletes in need of financial support or GivingVision.org, an organization committed to helping keratoconus patients.
