American Olympians To Watch

With the 2014 Winter Olympics underway in Sochi, Russia, Onion Sports provides a comprehensive guide to the most exciting U.S. athletes.

  • Shaun White (Snowboarding): A multi-million-dollar athlete who probably should have been one of those guys who just fell through your high school’s cracks
  • Nick Goepper (Slopestyle Skiing): At just 19 years old, Goepper has already proven himself a natural at posing in front of an American flag with his skis suspended across his shoulders and his arms hooked around them
  • Tim Burke (Biathlon): Burke was asked to join the team after impressively gunning down nine people in a small Minnesota town and then fleeing on skis
  • Lolo Jones (Bobsled): The track and field phenom has already drawn controversy for being an attractive woman
  • Sarah Hendrickson (Ski Jumping): She made the Olympic team, so she’s probably pretty good at ski jumping
  • Polina Edmunds (Figure Skating): Already 15 years of age, many are wondering if this Olympic hopeful is simply too old to be a professional figure skater
  • Noelle Pikus-Pace (Skeleton): The mother of two is easily identified during training runs as the one with a sidecar of children attached to her sled
  • Patrick Kane (Ice Hockey): One of the few people here who has more important things he could be doing with his time
  • Ted Ligety (Alpine Skiing): The 2006 gold medalist is once again expected to come up big in the Downhill Who Gives A Shit and Skiing Is Fucking Boring Slalom events
  • Becca Thompson (Figure Skating): This 16-year-old from Bellevue, OH isn’t strictly an Olympian—and may have only gone skating once, last winter on the rink near her house at 228 Tulane Street—but man, is she beautiful
  • Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings (Beach Volleyball): The greatest duo in beach volleyball history look to defend their 2010 Olympic gold
  • Kelly Clark (Snowboarding): The 30-year-old Clark claims she’s participating in her fourth Olympics, though we’re pretty sure we would’ve remembered her by now
  • Gracie Gold (Figure Skating): Despite numerous attempts, the media has yet to devise clever wordplay that combines the 18-year-old’s last name and her goal of placing first in her events
