U.S. chances to medal: White is going for his third consecutive gold medal in this event. Four years ago, Davis upset White in a run-up event to the Vancouver Olympics but was seriously injured in an ATV crash in Utah, which put him out of the qualifying mix.

Little-known fact: White's other "job" is keeping him busy these days. His band, Bad Things, released its debut album Jan. 21. One track getting some notice is called "Vices."
