  • Women's Giant Slalom
    We get the debut of potential breakout star Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. The 18-year-old is stronger in the slalom but could pick up her first Olympic medal in the giant slalom. The first of the two runs has been moved to earlier in the morning because of changing course conditions.
    Women's Bobsled
    The U.S. put itself in a risky situation when it switched up bobsled teams last week, moving former sprinter Lauryn Williams to the No. 1 sled with Elana Meyers. They have raced together only once in competition. Tuesday will be the first two runs of a four-run competition.
    Men's Hockey
    Russia, because of a loss to the U.S., did not get seeded and has to play an extra game to get to the quarterfinals. It should have an easy time with Norway and then would get Finland and probably Sweden after that. The U.S. plays the winner of the Czech Republic-Slovakia game.
    Men's Giant Slalom
    Ted Ligety of the U.S. is considered a strong threat to take the gold medal. He is the defending World Cup champion and has been dominant in this race in the past. Things got a little easier when Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway pulled out reportedly because of allergy problems.
