2002

2002: Bloomfield's Dwight Freeney, a first-round pick out of Syracuse, won a Super Bowl ring as a member of the Indianapolis Colts and is a seven-time Pro Bowl selection. 2002: A third-generation Olympian, Jim Shea, a Conard High graduate, followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Jack Shea, who won two gold medals in the 1932 Olympics in speed skating, and his father Jim Sr., who was an Olympic cross country skier in 1964. Jim Jr. won the gold medal in skeleton, the first time the event was contested since 1948, in Salt Lake City. 2002: Bob Cuneo of Oxford, a race car designer who made NASCAR legend Geoff Bodine's cars, teamed with Bodine in the early '90s to make American-made bobsleds after years of futility in the event in the Winter Games. In 2002, the Bo-Dyn Bobsled Project sleds won Olympic medals for the first time since 1956. And in 2010 in Vancouver, Steve Holcomb drove the Night Train sled to the U.S.' first gold medal in the four-man bobsled since 1948. Cuneo, who owns Chassis Dynamics in Oxford, was recently inducted into the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Hall of Fame. Courtesy Of Freeney Family
