The U.S. luge team's slippery sleds that fell off a truck have been found by the side of an eastern Pennsylvania roadway.

US ATHLETES TO WATCH

The Winter Olympics in Sochi are just weeks away. See which American athletes to watch as we count down to the Games.

A man spotted the training sleds on the roadside Feb. 16 and held onto them for safekeeping. Mike Miller learned from media reports they belonged to USA Luge and contacted state police, who picked them up Friday.

The resident of Moore Township in Northampton County says he's glad the luges are being returned to their owner.

A USA Luge representative had lost five of the sleds out the back of his truck while 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.

Easton's The Express-Times newspaper first reported the sleds had been recovered.
