Olympic short track speedskater John Henry Kreuger grew up in Peters Township, Pennsylvania, and debuted at the 2018 Winter Games after illness kept him out of the 2014 Olympics.
“It’s my first games, so I’m not putting any expectations,” Kreuger told WPXI before heading to Pyeongchang, South Korea. “The only expectation I'm putting on myself is to not be afraid to skate and do what I can do.”
