Skiers To Follow in Sochi 2014 (2)
Slovenia’s Tina Maze will be aiming to follow up her impressive 2013 World Cup season – when she won the overall, Super-G, Giant Slalom and Combined titles – by claiming her first Olympic gold medal.
Germany’s Maria Höfl-Riesch, who won Olympic gold in the Combined and Slalom in Vancouver, is also likely to feature on the podium again, having started the 2014 season in impressive form.
US hopes are likely to rest on the shoulders of teenage sensation Mikaela Shiffrin, the reigning World Cup and world champion in Slalom.
