As we scrolled through the list of events in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, we wondered if there were any Texans competing for the United States in Sochi. Thanks to the Dallas Morning News for identifying the fine athletes who hail from the Lone Star State. Here are the ones to follow the next couple of weeks:
Jordan Malone – short track speedskating
Jonathan Garcia – short track speedskating
Johnny Quinn – bobsled
Justin Olsen – bobsled
Katie Uhlaender – skeleton
There are also three players from the Dallas Stars who will compete in hockey for their home counties – Jamie Benn (Canada), Kari Lehtonen (Finland), and Valeri Nichushkin (Russia).
