Skeleton stars of 2002 recall their Olympic thrills
Jimmy Shea and Tristan Gale both won gold medals at the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002. On the Games' 10th anniversary, they remember the incredible crowds at the skeleton run at Park City, where fans chanted "USA! USA!" and created an electric atmosphere for a sport making its return to the Winter Olympics for the first time since the 1920s.
