After the National Hockey League announced it would prohibit its players from participating in the 2018 Winter Olympics, coaches and recruiters turned to NHL veteran Gionta to lead the team.
"What it comes down to at the end of the day is trust", says Sean Burke, the two-time Olympian who is general manager of the 2018 club. The U.S. also beat them in a preliminary round.
But instead of going pro, he chose to stay in school - opening the door for this gentle giant to make history as an amateur athlete. Jamie Anderson will try to defend her slopestyle gold. In 2017, he won the World Junior Championships and took home a silver medal at the 2017 US Figure Skating Championships.

"I had a good year, and I got some attention off of it, and I thought there might have been a shot at signing, but it didn't work out", Gilroy said. "We are Team USA and we are going after the gold and going to do our best to win a medal and make everyone proud of us". At least three players from North Korea will dress in each game.
"For the last four or five weeks we've been sharpening our game".
It should be stale by now. The women's finals are Feb. 23, and Team USA has three top competitors: Marino, Anderson and Hailey Langland.
