It was an unforgettable moment for Pittsfield native Chris Mazdzer. He was grinning from ear to ear as he received his silver medal for his spectacular run over the weekend.
He's the first American to medal in Men's Singles Luge, ending a 54-year drought for Team USA in the event.
"I didn't play it safe. I was like, 'I'm either going to crash or I'm going to get a medal,'" he avowed.
It's Mazdzer's third Winter Games, he finished in 13th place in 2010 and 2014.
