Men's 1500m
Shani Davis, pictured above, calls the 1500m "the race of kings" and will look to win gold in the distance after winning silver at the last two Games. He currently sits in first for the overall World Cup standings for the 1500m but Russia's Denis Yuskov won the distance at World Championships and will be a major contender.

Men's 10,000m
Sven Kramer, pictured above, was infamously disqualified in 2010 from the 10,000m after being waved into an illegal lane shift by his coach that eliminated what would have been a gold medal and world record. He'll look for redemption in Sochi and will face competition from countrymen Jorrit Bergsma, who beat Kramer in the distance at 2013 World Championships.
