And despite all the nerves and pal­pi­tations that Weber had expe­ri­enced the pre­vi­ous two weeks, noth­ing could pre­pare him for see­ing Suter, his team­mate and defense partner, wait­ing for a plane back to Nashville.

As they walked to­ward each oth­er, Suter im­me­diately broke the ten­sion.

"Just act the same, I don’t care. You won a gold. I’m happy for you. Just act normal. Don’t hide it,” Suter told him. “If people talk about it, talk about it with them. You should be proud of it.”

With those words, Weber felt at ease.

“He was awesome,” Weber said re­cently. “I didn’t know what to say, but he made it easy and acted like he would any oth­er time, and things were back to normal.”
