The U.S. Nordic combined team arrived in Sochi with high expectations, as the team made history at the Vancouver Games by winning the country’s first Olympic medals (one gold, three slivers) in the sport. Leading the pack in 2010 was Demong, who nabbed the first U.S. Olympic gold medal in Nordic combined. Lodwick entered Sochi as the first American to make his sixth appearance at an Olympic Winter Games. The best finish was achieved in the team event where Billy Demong, Bryan Fletcher, Taylor Fletcher and Todd Lodwick finished 6th.
