Ryan Cochran-Siegle became the latest member of the family to write his name into Olympic history

The Cochran clan did it again. On late Monday night into Tuesday morning, 29-year-old Ryan Cochran-Siegle became the latest member of the family to write his name into Olympic history.  29-year old Ryan Cochran-Siegle, overnight became the second member of Vermont’s first family of skiing to claim an Olympic medal. RCS threw down a phenomenal run in the Super G,  finishing only four-one-hundredths of a second behind Matthias Mayer of Austria, and claiming a silver medal, his first career podium in his second Olympics. The last time a Cochran earned Olympic hardware, you’ve gotta go back 50 years. Friday will be the 50th anniversary of Ryan’s mother, Barbara Ann Cochran, claiming Olympic gold in the slalom in  Sapporo, Japan. And needless to say, she was thrilled with her son joining her as an Olympic medalist.
