Nick Goepper talks about Olympics on GMC
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Lawrenceburg native and Olympic bronze medal winner, Nick Goepper, stopped by Local 12 to talk about his amazing past couple of weeks.
Nick says his reception in the Midwest since coming home from Sochi has been amazing. He'll be honored with a parade in Lawrenceburg in two days. He calls the support and love from the area incredible.
He says his Olympic dream has only been alive for two years, because that's when they found out ski slopestyle would be an Olympic sport. He says being up on the podium with his two American buddies during the third ever sweep of an Olympic sport by Americans, was amazing.
He had his bronze medal around his neck but says he's not going to keep it with him much longer. Nick says he's going to let his mom take care of it because he admits, he's not responsible enough.
When asked what advice he'd give John Gumm, who's skiing at Perfect North for the first time this weekend, he says don't french fry when you're supposed to pizza.
