Following the results of the penultimate World Cup event of the season in Igls, Austria, the USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation announced the members of the U.S. Olympic team on Jan. 18. The five athletes -- three male and two female -- include three Olympic veterans, as well as two sliders who will be making their Olympic debuts in Sochi. One thing they all have in common? Each will be trying to win the U.S. its first skeleton medal since 2002.
Matt Antoine won the first World Cup gold medal of his career this season in Lake Placid.
Daly came in fifth at the 2013 World Championships and will be trying to improve upon his 17th place finish at the 2010 Games.
A freak accident prevented 2006 medal favorite Noelle Pikus-Pace from competing in Torino, and after finishing in fourth place in 2010, the Utah native retired without an Olympic medal to her name. She came out of retirement to try again in Sochi, and the 31-year-old mother of two has returned to being a perennial World Cup medalist.
The oldest member of the U.S. Olympic skeleton team, Tress will be making his Olympic debut at the age of 32.
A two-time World Cup overall champion, Uhlaender finished in sixth place in 2006 and 11th in 2010.
