Lindsey Vonn

U.S., Alpine Skiing

She was going to be the biggest story of the Games before suffering a severely bruised shin 10 days before the Opening Ceremony.

Vonn is arguably the most dominant U.S. skier in history and will race all five disciplines and has a very real chance to medal in at least three. Twice the World Cup overall champion, Vonn's drama now promises to make her a television star across America.
