LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (AP): Hundreds of students and others filled the high school gymnasium in slopestyle skier Nick Goepper's southeastern Indiana hometown to celebrate his Olympic bronze medal win. The rally Tuesday at Lawrenceburg High School came hours after the 19-year-old Goepper arrived back home nearly two weeks after he and two other Americans swept the slopestyle medals in Sochi. Goepper told the crowd he was proud to hear Lawrenceburg announced as his hometown and hopes to compete in future Winter Olympics.
