When 15-year-old high school freshman Maggie Voisin drops into her first run in Sochi, she will be the youngest U.S. Olympian, Winter or Summer, since 1996, overtaking the man who previously held that honor, Michael Phelps. Though her potential may not exactly be Phelpsian, coaches initially believed the teenager was poised to win a medal in 2018, not 2014. However, the Whitefish, Montana native has already realized some of that potential this season, finishing third at Dew Tour, making a medal in Sochi not seem out of the question.
