World Champion and three-time Olympic medalist, Johnny Spillane's Olympic Silver Medal Nordic Combined, 2010 Vancouver, B.C., Canada On display at the Tread of Pioneers Museum starting tomorrow! Come and see it!

-Spillane won gold at the Nordic Combined World Championships in Val de Feimme, Italy, in 2003. The win made him the first American Nordic athlete (including all the Nordic sports) ever to win gold at either the Olympics or the World Championships.

-2010, Winter Olympics: Spillane wins three silver medals in the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2010. Spillane made U.S. history by winning silver in the Normal Hill event (90-meter jump/10-kilometer cross-country race) on the first day of Nordic competition. The Olympic medal was the first in U.S. Nordic Combined history.

Spillane then won silver in the Large Hill event, behind teammate Billy Demong. Demongís gold medal win then became the first gold in U.S. Nordic Combined history. Spillaneís third silver medal was excitedly shared among members of the Team event.
The teamís efforts at the 2010 Winter Olympics forever changed history and gave the U.S. Nordic Combined program international acclaim.
