The Loudmouth Project

A soldier’s Olympic journey

In this episode, Amy Donaldson talks with Army Captain (soon-to-be Major) Chris Fogt about why he joined the military, what it was like to be competing as an Olympic bobsledder for Team USA when the men he trained with were deployed to Iraq, and why he left the sport after the 2010 Games to serve a year in Iraq. Fogt talks about what it was like to represent his country in two Olympic Games, and how it felt to finally earn an Olympic medal in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. We caught up with Chris when he came to Utah to accept an award as Male Olympian of the Year for the state of Utah.
