Well, it’s that time of year again. Or perhaps we should we say, that time of every four years. If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’ll tell you – it’s time for the 2018 Winter Olympics! This time around, it will be taking place in PyeongChang, South Korea, and we are simply overflowing with excitement. The fans are ready, the sportscasters are ready, and most importantly – the competitors are super ready.
And while Olympians from all over the world train hard for the event, we’re looking to shine a spotlight on the talented women who are part of Team U.S.A. in this year’s Winter Olympics. In the last century alone, fans across the world have been lucky enough to watch them compete at the highest of levels, in multiple fields of winter sports – whether it be intensive luge racing, extreme snowboarding, or team based ice hockey.
So get ready to strap on your skates, grab your Wheaties and your Gatorade and we’ll make sure to meet you at the snow summit in PyeongChang. Alternatively, you can snuggle up with your snack of choice, as we take you through the different women athletes of the U.S. of A. who will be squaring off with their fiercest competition.
There is a plethora of sports women playing in this year’s games, at various stages of their careers: we’ve got the newbies – the rising stars within the scene who have already impressed the public with their bright, young energy, and are more than ready to continue to solidify their place in Winter Olympics history. And then of course we have the veterans, the record holders, the keepers of the keys, who any young lady with with a desire to make history would look up to, and at times will have to face and ultimately dethrone.
Yes, we’ve got a very talented bunch of American winter sports women this time around, from the ice skating prowess of Madison Hubbell, to the amazing cross country skiing of Jessie Diggins. Or perhaps you’re more of an ice hockey fan – in that case, we have what you need as well, as we talk about how the legendary Amanda Kessel is geared up and ready to go this February.
Get ready friends, because we’re about to run through them all. There is a good chance you will come across some familiar faces – and you’ll probably see some new ones too. Either way, they will all be a part of Team U.S.A. this year, eager to bring home the gold.

Isn’t wonderful when we find the person we love most in the world, and we discover that our passions are actually very similar? Such was the case with Alexa Scimeca Knierim and her husband Chris Knierim, for not only are they both professional figure skaters poised to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics, they actually compete as a duo. Together, they have won both silver and bronze medals in the Four Continents competition, and they became U.S. National Champions both in 2015 and in 2018.
