ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KSDK) – A Chesterfield man is making a big name for himself in Sochi, and he's not even competing in any of the events.
Jerry Kokesh is a part of the International Biathlon Union and has been a major factor in the running culture in St. Louis, dating back to the 1970s.
Kokesh has helped get summer biathlon off the ground in St. Louis, and NewsChannel 5 reporter Casey Nolen spoke to him about bringing it home in the winter and his involvement in the sport.
