Olympian from Whitehall stepping away from bobsled

Local Olympian Codie Bascue is stepping away from the sport of bobsled. The Whitehall native made the announcement on Instagram this afternoon.

Bascue says bobsled has been a part of his life for almost 20 years but he says he’s neglected his mental health for the past few years, and he will now be focusing on that.

The former NewsChannel 13 “Athlete of the Week” piloted the two man and four man sleds in the 2018 Winter Olympics
