It's a dream come true for Washington County native Codie Bascue. He was named to the U.S. Olympic Men's Bobsled Team on Monday. That means he will be heading to South Korea for the 2018 Winter Games.

This will be Bascue's first trip to an Olympics.

NewsChannel 13 first introduced you to him back in 2010, when he was featured as our High School Player of the Week. We profiled him again in 2014, when he just missed a spot on that year's Olympic team.

You can watch Bascue compete in both the two-man and four-man bobsled events when the Olympics begin February 9.

NewsChannel 13 is your home for the Winter Games. Our coverage begins February 8. Be sure to follow us online, in our Olympic Zone at WNYT.com.
