Following the results of the penultimate World Cup race of the season in Igls, Austria, the USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation announced the members of the U.S. Olympic team on Jan. 19. The 15 athletes -- nine male and six female -- include seven Winter Games veterans (including three of the four 'Night Train' members who won gold in 2010), as well as eight bobsledders who will be making their Olympic bobsled debuts in Sochi.

Steven Holcomb, pilot
Having overcome a degenerative eye condition that left him nearly blind, bobsled pilot Steven Holcomb led the ‘Night Train’ to gold in Vancouver in the four-man competition. Holcomb will be back to pilot the ‘Night Train Squared’ in Sochi, and will also try to win the U.S. men’s team its first two-man medal since 1952.

Lolo Jones, push athlete
Two years after taking up bobsled, the former Olympic hurdler will make her Winter Games debut, still on the search for her first Olympic medal.
Steve Langton, push athlete
The former Northeastern sprinter was part of the USA-2 bobsled in both the two-man (10th place) and four-man (DNF) during the Vancouver Games. Since then, he has moved up to the USA-1 sled and become Steven Holcomb's right-hand man, and will likely be in Holcomb's sled in both the two-man and four-man events.
Elana Meyers, pilot
Elana Meyers won the bronze medal as a brakeman in 2010. Now a driver, Meyers is trying to pilot the U.S. to its first women's bobsled medal since the 2002 Games.
