Top Contenders, Back for Gold

Will these Olympic medalists bring home the gold for team US?

 

Meryl Davis and Charlie White: Figure Skating

Davis and White have been skating together since 1997, making the pair the longest-running ice dance team from the US. In 2010, the pair took home an Olympic silver medal and were World Champions in 2011 and 2013. They’re confident that their silver will turn to gold this season.

 

Lolo Jones: Bobsledding

Though this isn’t Jones’ first time at to olympics, it is her first time taking on a winter sport. The track and field medalist will now try her hand at bobsledding for team US.

 

Shaun White: Snowboarding 

White and his famous red (now shorn) locks return for another year in the Winter Olympics. While he recently pulled out of slopestyle, he’s focused on halfpipe gold. If all goes accordingly, White will pick up his third gold in halfpipe.
