Luge: Women's singles

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.
