Five days until the Sochi Olympics! For two members of TeamUSA this is their fifth Olympics: Billy Demong (Nordic combined) and Bode Miller (skiing)! And five athletes who competed in the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games are making their Olympic debuts in Sochi: Aaron Blunck (freestyle skiing), Summer Britcher (luge), Sean Doherty (biathlon), Arielle Gold (snowboarding), and Tucker West (luge).
