Winter Games Athletes
Langton joins Chris Fogt as the two new members of the four-man "Night Train" team that won gold at the 2010 Olympics. That squad, piloted by the returning Steven Holcomb, became the first American team to top the podium in men's bobsled since 1948. It's been quite a 2013-14 season for Langton, who paired with Holcomb to win gold in his first five World Cup races. Most recently, Holcomb and Langton broke the track record en route to winning a two-man World Cup race on Jan. 18. Langton was also part of the four-man team that captured silver in that event the following day. At the 2012 world championships, Holcomb and Langton won gold in the two-man event before Langton and the "Night Train" team took gold in the four-man, making that crew the first American team to win both at the same worlds. Langton made his Olympic debut in 2010, finishing 10th in the two-man with pilot John Napier. He earned a spot on the World Cup circuit in his first competitive season as a bobsled athlete. Regarded as one of the sport's best pure athletes, Langton was a member of Northeastern's track and field team as a sprinter and jumper. He won the inaugural World Push Championship title in 2011.
