Vermont Olympian Deibold attends welcome-home party


STRATTON (AP) - Vermont native Alex Deibold says just being at the Olympics in Sochi and competing was an incredible experience, but getting a medal was something else.

Deibold won the bronze medal for snowboardcross.

He's appeared on talk shows and dropped the puck at a Bruins game Tuesday. On Wednesday, he was at a welcome-home party in Stratton.

He tells WCAX-TV he never pictured a line of kids waiting to get autographs and take pictures of him.
