Shim Suk-Hee
With Wang Meng out, it's entirely possible the South Korean women sweep in Sochi. For that to happen, Shim Suk-Hee will have to continue her domination over the middle distances. Shim, who will be 17 at the Games, was the overall World Cup champion the past two years and is a favorite in the 1000m and 1500m.
