FILE - In this Dec. 11, 2002, file photo, 1984 Olympic downhill skiing gold medalist Bill Johnson shows off his medal while eyeing the ski slopes in Breckenridge, Colo. Most days are a struggle for Olympic downhill champion Bill Johnson as he lies in bed at an assisted living facility in Gresham, Oregon, watching his favorite television shows. He can't move his legs and arms anymore. He can barely speak. But this brought a smile to Johnson's face: On his 55th birthday Monday, March 30, 2015, U.S. Ski Team sent him a video tribute, with downhiller Steven Nyman telling him, "You're the man."
