Early in Olympic history, the U.S.'s light-heavyweight boxer made a cameo at the Winter Games, and earned gold doing it. Eddie Eagan, who had previously won gold at the Summer Games, took a historic bobsled ride in the four-man at the 1932 Lake Placid Games. He had taken up bobsledding just three weeks earlier. As if that weren't quirky enough, the race didn't end up happening until two days after the Games had closed, thanks to a sloshy course.
