American couple won Olympic medals and married

Jim and Julia Brady are among the few non-skating American couples who have won Olympic medals and married

Among athletes, too much is made of the Olympic Games.  However, that precious, pressure-filled moment often defines a career.

Jim and Julia Brady met as they were preparing to compete in separate sailing events in the 1992 Barcelona games. 

He would go on to take what he considered a disappointing silver.  She would win a thrilling bronze.  

Both would be named Rolex Sailor of the Year. Jim would win a number of world championships in various classes.

Jim and Julia Brady settled in Greater Portland...twice. 

Their story of love and life is almost unique among non-skating American athletes.
