Quiet year for disasters in USA; not so in Europe

Jessica Jerome has been ski jumping since 2000, and she secured the first nomination to the USA Olympic ski jump team by winning at the 2014 USA Olympic team trials. Sarah Hendrickson Sarah Hendrickson was born on August 1, 1994, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

USA Basketball Honors Huskies

While Vonn's celebrity will be missed, there are plenty of star athletes elsewhere to help carry the torch. Although the Figure Skating National Championships haven't been held yet, Gracie Gold and Ashley Wagner seem like locks to make Team USA. Neither are overwhelming favorites to be on the medal stand in Sochi, but both are great competitors and watching them skate their hearts out to fight for a medal will be compelling theater. But the most exciting part of the figure skating competition for Americans this year might be watching Team USA ice dancers Charlie White and Meryl Davis, the favorites for the gold medal, turn the ice rink into their ballroom. The two have a devoted following and are looking to become the first Americans to ever win gold in ice dancing. Atsushi Tomura/Getty Images Meanwhile, fan favorite J.R.
