Results of the men's four-man bobsled run finals.

WHISTLER, British Columbia Steven Holcomb has driven USA-1 to the gold medal in four-man bobsledding, ending a 62-year drought for the Americans in the event.

It was the first gold medal for the U.S. in sliding's signature race since Francis Tyler won one for the Americans at St. Moritz in 1948.

Holcomb's four-run time was 3 minutes, 24.46 seconds.

German legend Andre Lange, who failed to win a gold medal for the first time in five Olympic events, had a nearly perfect final run to win the silver in what he says will be his final race. Lange finished 0.38 seconds behind Holcomb and his team of Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler and Curt Tomasevicz.

Lyndon Rush drove Canada-1 to the bronze.
