2014 Winter Olympics – Texas connection

Posted February 5, 2014 in The Latest

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).
