The 2014 Olympic Winter Games were held Feb. 7-23 in Sochi, Russia. The 17 days of competition featured 15 disciplines of the seven International Olympic Committee-recognized winter sports.
Facing remarkable competition, the U.S. finished second in the medal count with 28 medals – the most won by Team USA at any Olympic Winter Games held outside North America. Overall, 61 Americans contributed to the medal haul and 10 were crowned Olympic champions. While the U.S. achieved historic podium finishes in sliding sports and other traditional events, American athletes made arguably the biggest impact in the new medal events, highlighted by a momentous sweep of the men’s slopestyle skiing podium. And continuing the trend from 2012, American women earned more podium appearances than any other nation.
