Jordan Malone is one of the older members of the U.S. short track team. Despite an injury-plagued career, Malone has won 15 World Cup medals, including three this season with the relay team. Malone started his career as an inline skater and an enormously successful one at that. The Dallas native won the overall world title in 2003 and made the move to the ice the next year. Malone missed the 2006 Winter Olympics but skated in Vancouver and won a bronze medal with the relay team. His most successful season was the 2006-2007 World Cup season, where he won four individual medals. Malone has said that the 2014 Sochi Games would be his last Olympics, and he assured a spot in the Games at Olympic Trials. Malone finished fifth in the overall standings and third in the rankings for the 500m, which was enough to secure a position on the Olympic team. Malone won silver in the relay in Sochi.
