Goepper family brings Olympic thrills home
Nick Goepper has developed a huge following since winning a slopestyle bronze medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

The fan club for the 19-year-old Olympic skier from Lawrenceburg, Ind. consists of Hollywood elites, sporting heroes and lovesick young ladies across the globe.

But regardless of how famous he becomes or the number of Twitter followers he acquires (68,500 and counting), there's one group of people who will always have a special place in his life: his family.

9 On Your Side sports director John Popovich sat down with Goepper's mother, father and siblings Sunday for a special post-Olympics episode of Sports of All Sorts.
