BATH, Pa. (AP) — The U.S. luge team’s slippery sleds have been found.

A man spotted the training sleds by the side of an eastern Pennsylvania roadway last Saturday and held onto them for safekeeping. Mike Miller learned from media reports they belonged to USA Lug and contacted state police, who picked them up Friday morning.

Miller, of Moore Township in Northampton County, says he’s glad the luges are being returned to their rightful owner.

A USA Luge representative had lost five of the sleds out the bank of his truck while he was in Pennsylvania for a recruiting event. Team marketing director Gordy Sheer says he’s planning to meet the Miller family at Blue Mountain Ski Area to thank them in person.

The Express-Times of Easton first reported the sleds had been recovered.
