The Beijing Winter Olympics will feature some of Team USA’s best and brightest stars who can make history in China. Mikaela Shiffrin (26, Edwards, Colorado), a once-in-a-generation skier, is a gold medal threat in any event that she enters. The three-time Olympic medalist (two gold) could tie or break the record for most Olympic alpine skiing medals at a single Games. Shaun White (35, Carlsbad, California), a four-time Olympian and three-time Olympic gold medalist will try to become the first athlete in any sport at the Olympic Winter Games to win four gold medals in the same individual event (men’s halfpipe). Chloe Kim (21, Torrance, California), the 2018 Olympic champion in women’s halfpipe, returns to chase a second straight gold medal. Kim, the daughter of South Korean immigrants, took nearly two years off from competition between 2019 and early 2021, healing an ankle injury.
