PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. -

On the eve of competing in his first Olympic games, we take a peak inside the News 8 archive vault for a story we did with Prairie du Chien native Matt Antoine back in 2006.

"Being young gives me a lot of time to progress in this sport and I have a lot of time to work my way up to where i want to be," Antoine told News 8 eight years ago.

The men's skeleton competition gets underway Friday at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games. The two runs will take place at 9:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. CST. NBC will air the event in their 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. coverage window.
