Skiing

Another popular sport during the Winter Olympics is skiing. Many people have their favorite celebrity skiers. Others earn their star during the Olympics.

There was quite a stir when popular favorite Lindsey Vonn announced that she would not be on the Olympic team. Vonn said that her injuries sustained in a nasty accident need more time to heal.

This leaves room for a new star to emerge.

The U.S. Team still hopes to bring some medals home for their country.

Many in the U.S. were sad when Lindsey Vonn announced she would not be going to the Olympics.

Bobsleigh

This Olympic's bobsled event may be interesting with track runner turned bobsled enthusiast making a bid for the 2014 bobsled team. Lolo Jones aims to make a name for herself in the bobsled as well.

The bobsled developed an even bigger following after the movie Cool Runnings created an audience for the events based on an account of the Jamaican bobsled team.

The bobsled involves a strong team willing to work together. Is a medal in the works for the U.S. bobsled team?

Curling

Sliding a stone across some ice sounds more like a child's game than an Olympic sport. But not only is this a sport, it is taken very seriously by the athletes who play it. The four person curling teams works together in their sport to create perfection.

This year's curling even and it's already award-winning United States team will be fun to watch.

Luge

If you enjoyed sledding as a kid then you should enjoy the luge. Except for all the danger and the speeds of up to 90 mph. This icy thrill ride is not for the faint of heart.

This year's Luge team has it all---experience, fitness and enthusiasm.

As this event unfolds there are sure to be some new stars and role models emerge from this slippery slope.

Biathlon

This is a very demanding and often misunderstood sport. Biathlon involves endurance and accuracy, two very different skills. In the Olympics biathlon, the athlete must complete a rigorous cross-country skiing course, carrying a rifle, which they will use to shoot targets along the way.

Skeleton

The athletes who participate in the Skeleton must have loved sledding as a kid. Just like a traditional sled it is a single person and there are no brakes. The rider heads face first at breakneck speeds, using his or her body to guide the sled. The sledders go so fast that, according to the Encylopedia Britannica, they can experience 5G of force on their bodies.
