Skiers To Follow in Sochi 2014 (3)

Alexis Pinturault is French Alpine skiing’s brightest hope. A World Junior Giant Slalom champion in 2009, he made his World Cup debut as an 18-year-old that same season and was soon figuring among the best in Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G and Super Combined.
Pinturault has six World Cup victories through January 2014.

Bode Miller has won races in all the Alpine skiing events, from Slalom to Downhill. He will be in the Olympic Games for the fifth time, 16 years after the Nagano Games. He won two silver medals at the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City in 2002.
In Vancouver 2010 he finished in third place in the Downhill, winning the bronze medal, and a silver medal in the Super G. Two days later, he relished his first Olympic title in the Super Combined.

Felix Neureuther was born in Munich-Pasing and raised in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria. He has competed in two Olympics: Turin 2006 and Vancouver 2010. Neureuther won his first World Cup race in 2010, in a Slalom at Kitzbühel, Austria. He won his only Giant Slalom in January 2014 at Adelboden,Switzerland. Neurether won a silver medal in the Slalom at the 2013 World Championships held in Schladming.
