Ted Ligety, USA The King of GS, Ligety may be the best hope for gold on the U.S. men’s team. The 2008 World Cup GS champ and 2006 Olympic gold medalist in the combined, he’s earned the nickname “Teddy Ball Game” for his ability to crush big events and his reputation as an all-around good guy. So much for nice guys finishing last.
