Lodwick, competing in his sixth Winter Olympics, led the team up a ramp that had dropped down from the middle of the floor, then ran ahead, waving the flag with one arm and to a packed, roaring stadium with the other. He then rejoined the front ranks of Team USA and walked with them step for step around the arena.
