    Four years ago, American athletes took home 37 medals in Vancouver - a Winter Games record.

     Leading the way were star skier Lindsey Vonn, who became the first U.S. woman to win gold in the downhill, and speed skating icon Apolo Ohno, whose three medals in Vancouver cemented his place as the most decorated American Winter Olympic athlete of all time.

    But now that Vonn has been sidelined with a knee injury and Ohno has officially retired, who will be the face of Team USA as it goes for gold in Sochi? Here are 10 athletes who figure to have a strong shot of making the medal podium at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia.
