When: Feb. 10-11.
Best of the U.S.: Kate Hansen became the first American to win a World Cup event since 1997 when she took home gold last month in Sigulda, Latvia.
Best of the rest: Most expect German sliders Natalie Geisenberger and Tatjana Hufner to battle for gold, with everyone else fighting for bronze.
U.S. chances to medal: Despite Hansen's recent success, the U.S. team would surprise by finishing in the top five.
Little-known fact: Erin Hamlin is the only female luger from the U.S. to win a world championship, a feat she accomplished in 2009.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
