The celebration for the bobsled team's bronze medal spread the globe, from Sochi to East Tennessee.

Brad Deweese is an assistant professor of exercise and sport science at East Tennessee State University. He's also an Olympic trainer who helped train Steve Holcomb and Steve Langston.

He helped the two and nine other athletes with speed and conditioning, and this is the first time one of his athletes medaled.

"I was sitting on the couch this morning like everyone else on the internet. I was sweating bullets. I couldn't stay still. It came down to that final run. Holcomb drove clean and maintained that bronze medal position. I was the first one off the couch," said Deweese.

He will continue to follow his Olympians. The four-man bobsled competition is later this week.

Also, this is the first time the U.S. has medaled in the two-man bobsled since 1952.
