Men's slalom

When: Feb. 22.

Best of the U.S.: David Chodounsky, Nolan Kasper, Ted Ligety.

Best of the rest: Marcel Hirscher (Austria), Felix Neureuther (Germany), Henrik Kristoffersen (Norway).

U.S. chances to medal: How about a snowball's chance in a microwave oven? Chodounsky is a former NCAA slalom champion from Dartmouth who heads to Sochi after finishing a team-best No. 22 in the last pre-Olympic slalom in Austria.

Little-known fact: The U.S. men have not placed in the top six of an Olympic slalom since the 1984 Sarajevo Games, when brothers Phil and Steve Mahre went gold-silver.
