There must be something in the snow at Steamboat, as the ski resort can now brag about being the home of two Olympic Nordic Combined medal winners.  Bill Demong and Johnny Spillane, who, respectively, took home gold and silver in the individual large hill competition Thursday, both call Steamboat home.  Demong’s gold marked the first ever gold in the large hill competition for an American.  The U.S. Nordic Combined team has made quite a splash in Vancouver, as they will be bringing home medals from four events.
