 1. Alex and Maia Shibutani  – Team USA


[/text_output][text_output]This brother-sister combo is sure to impress with their ice dancing skills. They became skating partners in 2004 and their main event is Ice Dance. Two time Olympians coming in 9th place in Sochi (2014) and… spoiler alert… they won bronze in Pyeongchang (2018) for the team event! [/text_output][text_output]

2. Charlotte Kalla – Team Sweden


[/text_output][text_output]No stranger to the Olympics, Charlotte has amazed us time and time again in cross-country skiing events. Third time Olympian – winning Gold in 10km Individual and Silver in Team Sprint (Vancouver 2010), Gold in 4 X 5 km Relay and Silver medals in 10km Individual and 15km Skiathlon (Sochi 2014), and so far has won Gold in 15km Skiathlon in Pyeongchang (2018)… let’s see how many more medals she will take home![/text_output][text_output]

3. Kamil Stoch – Team Poland


[/text_output][text_output]Kamil started skiing at an early age of 3. No wonder he is deemed as the most successful ski jumper from Poland. Returning the Olympics for the 4th time, and two time gold medals in the Sochi Olympics – we are eager to see how he does on the slopes![/text_output][text_output]

4. Deniss Vasiljevs – Team Latvia


[/text_output][text_output]As Team Latvia’s only male figure skater, Deniss might be young but he is full of potential. Ranking 2nd in the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games, it’s his hope to compete in the Pyeongchang Olympics. We are cheering you on Deniss… FIGHTING!!![/text_output][text_output]

5. Chloe Kim – Team USA


[/text_output][text_output]This snowboarder is on fire and her smile is contagious! Adorning several medals from non-olympic competitions, this 17-year-old is excited to show what she’s got at the Pyeongchang Olympics. Bringing a little Cali sunshine to the frozy mountain slopes. And word on the street is she loves ice cream![/text_output][text_output]

6 . Lindsey Vonn – Team USA


[/text_output][text_output]Due to an injury Lindsey had to sit out the Sochi Olympics, but we are so glad to see her back at her 4th Olympic games! Competing in the Ladies Alpine Skiing event, I’m sure she will show out and teach these younger skiers a thing or two.
