Only one Alabamian has ever won a winter Olympics gold medal but it made history
Only one Alabamian has ever won a gold medal in a winter Olympic event. Do you remember her name? She won it a dozen years ago. Give up? She is Vonetta Flowers of Birmingham and UAB and she won gold in the women's bobsled in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.
