He has a gold medal, but now he wants a seat in Congress.

Marty Nothstein has entered the race for Pennsylvania's 15th District, which includes Berks, Dauphin, Lebanon, Lehigh, and Northampton counties.

Nothstein, a Republican, hopes to take over the seat from fellow Republican Charlie Dent, who is retiring after his term expires next year.

Nothstein won Olympic gold at the 2000 Sydney Games.

Two Republican state representatives are also in the running along with a Democrat who previously served as a Lehigh County commissioner.
