2. Freestyle Skiing — Men's Halfpipe

You would expect the U.S. to dominate the X-Games events in Sochi, and the Americans are on their way to doing just that. David Wise of the U.S. skis for gold in the halfpipe.

3. Short Track Speed Skating — Women's Relay

Elbows and bodies are likely to fly in this delightfully chaotic event, as South Korea and Canada battle for gold.

4. Women's Bobsled

Lolo Jones makes her highly anticipated Winter Olympics debut, but she's far from the only story on the bobsled track. In fact, the American duo of pilot Elana Meyers and brakeman Lauryn Williams are the headliners and their nation's best hope for gold.
