Mikaela Shiffrin

Road to Sochi: 2014 Gold Diggers

Can Bode and his fellow U.S. racers match their stellar Vancouver performance? The excitement starts Sunday.

Freakishly fast and irresistibly likeable Ted Ligety may be the clear favorite in GS, with a great shot at super combined gold as well.

And fresh-faced world beater Mikaela Shiffrin, at age 18, may be untouchable in slalom, an event she has utterly dominated for the past year (while making big strides in GS).

And feisty, fearless Julia Mancuso may well rise to the occasion as she so often has in big events, snagging one of the shinier medals in GS or super G or even downhill.

Miller, Ligety, Mancuso and first-time Olympian Shiffrin headline what may be strongest American ski squad ever.

Even without the injured Lindsey Vonn, winner of 59 World Cup races, the American alpine racing Olympic team looks one of the strongest ever. The U.S. Ski Team announced its Sochi team Sunday. It includes proven medal winners like Bode Miller, Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso along with an Olympic newcomer—18-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin—who’s already demonstrated that she’s the woman to beat in slalom and has been making impressive inroads in GS. The Games begin in just two weeks, starting with the men’s downhill on Feb. 9 and the women’s super combined on Feb. 10.

(Jan 4, 2013) After 17-year-old U.S. slalom star Mikaela Shiffrin landed her first career World Cup victory two weeks ago in Sweden, some in the European press intimated it was a fluke.
