Meet the 2022 U.S. Alpine Skiing Olympic Team
A total of 17 athletes – 11 women and six men – will represent the United States on the slopes of the Yanqing Alpine Skiing Center at the 2022 Winter Olympics. The headliner of the group is, of course, two-time Olympic gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin. She’ll be joined at the 2022 Games by a mixture of experienced veterans and young up-and-comers looking for their first taste of Olympic action.
The global face of Alpine skiing is back for her third Winter Olympics at age 26 and plans to be busier than ever. The three-time Olympic medalist (two gold) has never competed in more than three events at any single Games. This time out, she has sights set on all five individual Olympic events, potentially adding the fastest disciplines of super-G and downhill. History suggests Shiffrin will be among the favorites in every competition she enters, and if she manages a podium finish in three of them, she’d tie the record for most Olympic medals won by any female Alpine skier ever.
