All eyes on are on the mesmerizing Kim, who is shooting for a second straight Olympic gold medal, though that doesn't mean she's a sure bet. The South Korean superstar won gold in Vancouver with record scores and then captured gold again at the World Championships in 2013. Kim hasn't skated with the same regularity that she did leading up to the 2010 Games, but when she's on, she's one of the best skaters in the sport's history. Kim won a small warm-up event in Croatia in December, then another national title later that month. She'd become the first female skater to win back-to-back gold medals since Katarina Witt did so at the 1984 and 1988 Games.
