The women's ice hockey team prepared for their Olympic competition with a stop in San Diego that included a day of training on the beach in Coronado. 

In short track, two-time Olympic bronze medalist J.R. Celski finished fourth in the men’s 1500 m final.

If you’ve been excited to watch Apolo Ohno, the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian, you’re out of luck. He is retired.

Without Ohno, the Americans' best chance at winning gold is in the men's 5000m relay which will include  Celski who trained with athletes at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista preparing for Sochi, Russia.
