U.S. Olympic team for Sochi is largest at Winter Games

The U.S. Olympic Committee will send the largest athlete delegation for any nation in the history of the Winter Games with 230 athletes heading to Sochi, Russia when the Games open on Feb. 7.
Team USA features 105 women and 125 men and includes 106 returning Olympians and 13 Olympic champions. Nordic combined skier Todd Lodwick will become the first American to compete at six Winter Games. Two athletes are headed to their fifth Olympics — Billy Demong (Nordic combined) and Bode Miller (alpine skiing). Miller, a five-time Olympic medalist, needs three medals to match speedskater Apolo Anton Ohno as the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian.
