Mr. Holcomb was a 3-time member of the U.S. Olympic Team in Men's Bobsled (2-man and 4-man) having competed at Torino 2006, Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014.
During his international career representing Team USA, he won the U.S .first Olympic Gold medal in men's bobsled in 62 years piloting the "Night Train" 4-man sled (Tomasevicz, Mesler & Olsen) at Vancouver 2010. At Sochi 2014 with an torn achilles tendon suffered on the first day of competition in 2-man, Steven and brakeman Steven Langton won the first medal for Team USA in 62 years with a Bronze medal. In the 4-man competition, Steven won an additional Bronze (Tomasevicz, Langton & Fogt). With the 2 medals won in Sochi, no U.S. Bobsled team had won 2 medals at a Games also in 62 years. Posthumously these 2 medals were upgraded to Silver after Team Russia was disqualified for Doping in both 2-man and 4-man after they had won Gold. Each nation ultimately moved up a spot.
Mr. Holcomb and Langton were the only U.S. athletes on the entire Olympic Team to win 2 individual medals at the Games (this feat was duplicated by figure skaters White and Davis who won a Gold in an individual ice dancing and bronze in a team competition).
Steven additionally won 5 FIBT/IBSF World Championships in 2-man, 4-man and team events as well as 5 World Championship Bronze medals in these same events over his career.

At the FIBT/IBSF World Cup level he won 60 medals in 2-man and 4-man over his career. By far, he had the most successful career in American bobsled world cup history.
