SOCHI, Russia (KSDK) –If helping the U.S. beat Russia and take the gold medal in sled hockey wasn't cool enough, an Overland native got to serve as Team USA's flag bearer during the closing ceremony of the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games.

Steve Cash was chosen after a vote by his fellow U.S. athletes. He's already a two-time world champion.
