He moved to Phoenix, a place he'd never even visited. That decision may have saved Matt Antoine's life -- it certainly saved his career.
After winning the bronze medal in Sochi in 2014, Antoine was diagnosed with situational depression. He says finding a life away from skeleton in Arizona has renewed his love for the sport -- getting away from it reminded him of how much he loved it.
Now, he's preparing to slide in South Korea. He competes for the first time a week from today.
Antoine made two trips to PyeongChang to preview the track before coming out here for the Olympics, and he claims its better now than it's ever been.
Even if he's grown accustomed to the Phoenix heat, Antoine is excited that it's so cold up in the mountains.
