NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):

•    Women’s Alpine Skiing - Super Combined Gold Medal Final: The super combined, which involves one downhill run and one slalom run in a single day, is the first event on the women’s alpine program. Julia Mancuso, whose three Olympic medals are the most by any female American ski racer, should be in contention four years after winning silver in this event in Vancouver. She’ll have to be faster than a deep field of European contenders, led by German reigning champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch.
•    Men’s Freestyle Skiing - Moguls Gold Medal Final: One of the lasting images of the Vancouver Games occurred when Alex Bilodeau became the first Canadian to win Olympic gold on home soil and celebrated his victory with his older brother Frederic, who has cerebral palsy. Bilodeau will look to defend his title in Sochi, but his teammate Mikael Kingsubry edged him for the world title last March. The Americans cannot be counted out either, as they have won a medal in this event in four consecutive Games.
•    Men’s Short Track - 1500m Gold Medal Final: The first day of competition in short track speed skating is headlined by the final of the men’s 1500m, one of the two events in which top American J.R. Celski won bronze in Vancouver. Celski will be challenged by Russia’s Viktor Ahn, who missed Vancouver because of a knee injury but won three gold medals in Torino skating for his native South Korea as Ahn Hyun-Soo. Apolo Ohno’s former rival has since changed his nationality and his name, but he remains among the best in the sport. He may have a chance to win the host country’s first gold medal of the Games, which would also be Russia’s first ever short track medal.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Daytime):
•    Men’s Speed Skating - 500m Gold Medal Final: Two all-out sprints determine who gets gold in this distance. Wisconsin native Tucker Fredricks, who specializes in the 500m, makes his third Olympic appearance in Sochi, where he will be joined on the ice by American record holder Mitch Whitmore.
•    Men’s Biathlon - 12.5km Pursuit Gold Medal Final: Biathlon remains the only winter sport in which the U.S. has never won an Olympic medal, but New York native Tim Burke, who earned bronze in this event earlier this season, will look to change that in Sochi.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Late Night):
•    Women’s Short Track - Competition: Top American Aly Dudek looks to advance in short track’s shortest event, the four-and-a-half-lap 500m. She’ll likely have to contend with China’s most decorated Winter Olympian, Wang Meng, who won this event at the past two Games.
•    Women’s Luge - Competition: Germany is aiming to slide to its fifth straight gold in this event, as competitors from several other nations try to crash the podium in Sochi. The veteran leader of the U.S. squad is 2009 world champion Erin Hamlin, a 27-year-old from the small town of Remsen, New York, who will be making her third Olympic appearance in Sochi.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):
•    Figure Skating - Pairs’ Short Program: Reigning world champions Tatyana Volosozhar and Maksim Trankov look to reinstate Russia’s Olympic dominance in pairs figure skating following the 2010 Olympics, where Russia’s streak of 12 straight pairs gold medals (dating back to the Soviet era) was broken. The duo will begin their run at the top of the podium with the pairs’ short program, but may be challenged in front of a home crowd by four-time world champions and 2010 Olympic bronze medalists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany.
•    Women’s Freestyle Skiing - Slopestyle Gold Medal Final: Keri Herman, a 31-year-old who took up competitive skiing after growing up as a hockey player, and Devin Logan, a promising contender in both halfpipe and slopestyle, are among the Americans who should compete for medals.
•    Men’s Snowboarding - Halfpipe Gold Medal Final: In one of the most highly anticipated events of the Games, action sports icon Shaun White will attempt to become the first American man to win the same individual event at three Olympic Winter Games. Standing in his way will be 15-year-old Japanese phenom Ayumu Hirano and a de facto home favorite, Russian-born Swiss rider Iouri Podladtchikov. Known as “I-Pod,” Podladtchikov dubs his signature move the “YOLO flip,” which stands for “You Only Live Once.”
•    Women’s Ski Jumping - Individual K-95 Gold Medal Final: Women’s ski jumping makes its long-awaited Olympic debut. After tearing her ACL in August, 19-year-old Park City native Sarah Hendrickson, the reigning world champion, is attempting to return to full strength in time to become the event’s first gold medalist. The other top teen in the event is 17-year-old Japanese phenom Sara Takanashi, who placed second behind Hendrickson at the 2013 World Championships.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Daytime):

•    Women’s Cross-Country - Individual Sprint Gold Medal Final: This event represents the best chance for what would be only the second Olympic medal in U.S. cross-country history.

•    Women’s Luge - Gold Medal Final Runs: Germany is hoping to slide to its fifth straight gold in this event, as competitors from several other nations try to crash the podium in Sochi. The veteran leader of the U.S. squad is 2009 world champion Erin Hamlin, a 27-year-old from the small town of Remsen, New York, who makes her third Olympic appearance in Sochi.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Late Night):
•    Women’s Speed Skating - 500m Gold Medal Final: Former inline skater Heather Richardson has the potential to win several medals in Sochi, and this event could mark her first. The North Carolina native will be chasing after reigning Olympic gold medalist, Lee Sang-Hwa of South Korea.
•    Women’s Biathlon - 10km Pursuit Gold Medal Final: There will be high hopes for the host nation, as Russian Biathlon Union president Mikhail Prokhorov, the billionaire tycoon who also owns the Brooklyn Nets, set a goal of two or three gold medals for his athletes at the Games.

NBCSN HIGHLIGHTS:
•    Women’s Curling - USA vs. Russia: Sixteen years after her Olympic debut in Nagano, Erika Brown returns to the Games as the skip of the U.S. women’s curling team.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):

•    Figure Skating - Pairs’ Gold Medal Final: Reigning world champions Tatyana Volosozhar and Maksim Trankov look to reinstate Russia’s Olympic dominance in pairs figure skating following the 2010 Olympics, where Russia’s streak of 12 straight pairs gold medals (dating back to the Soviet era) was snapped.

•    Men’s Speed Skating - 1000m Gold Medal Final: Already one of his sport’s biggest stars, Shani Davis skates for history as he attempts to become the first American man to win the same event at three Olympic Winter Games.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):
•    Men’s Figure Skating - Short Program: Three-time world champion Patrick Chan of Canada remains the favorite for Olympic gold, but after winning each of his consecutive world titles by smaller and smaller margins, it appears that the rest of the men’s field is catching up with the 23-year-old from Toronto. The men’s competition gets underway with the short program, where it is now almost necessary to attempt a quad jump - figure skating’s most difficult element - to be competitive.
•    Men’s Freestyle Skiing - Slopestyle Gold Medal Final: This new Olympic event can be difficult to predict, but the U.S. is loaded with talent. Nick Goepper, a 19-year-old from a small Indiana farm town, leads the deep crop of skiers after collecting wins at several recent major events.
•    Women’s Speed Skating - 1000m Gold Medal Final: Training partners and roommates Heather Richardson and Brittany Bowe - both former inline skaters - will likely be each other’s toughest competition as they arrive at the Sochi Games ranked 1-2 in this event. A former college basketball standout in her home state of Florida, Bowe was inspired to try speed skating when she watched Richardson make her Olympic debut in Vancouver.
•    Women’s Skeleton - Competition: It’s been a long and winding road for Noelle Pikus-Pace, a Utah mother of two who finished fourth in Vancouver then retired from the sport. But the 31-year-old made her triumphant return in 2012 and quickly ascended the ranks to become a top contender in Sochi.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Daytime):
•    Men’s Biathlon - 20km Individual Gold Medal Final: Tim Burke won silver the 20km individual at 2013 Worlds, becoming the first U.S. biathlete to reach the podium at the event since 1987 (and just the second ever). In Sochi, the New York native will be gunning for the first U.S. Olympic biathlon medal as he makes his third appearance at the Games.
•    Luge - Team Relay Gold Medal Final Runs: The fastest competitors from each nation will join forces in the team relay, a new event in Sochi that measures time continuously as three sleds from each team go down the track one after the other. The Americans attempt to usurp traditional luge powers, such as Germany and Italy.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Late Night):
•    Women’s Short Track - 500m Gold Medal Final: In short track, top American Aly Dudek, who won bronze in the relay in Vancouver, competes in her signature event, the four-and-a-half-lap 500m. She’ll likely have to contend with China’s most decorated Winter Olympian, Wang Meng, who won this event at the past two Games.
•    Men’s Short Track - 5000m Relay Competition: J.R. Celski looks to lead the American men into the final of the 5000m relay. With Celski on the team in Vancouver, the U.S. won bronze for the second straight Olympics, and they will be looking to upgrade to gold after winning two of the four World Cup events this season.

NBCSN HIGHLIGHTS:

•    Men’s Hockey - Slovakia vs. USA: On the heels of their captivating run to a silver medal in Vancouver, the U.S. men begin the Sochi tournament LIVE against Slovakia, which surprised with a fourth-place finish four years ago.

•    Women’s Skeleton - Competition: It’s been a long and winding road for Noelle Pikus-Pace, a Utah mother of two who finished fourth in Vancouver then retired from the sport. But the 31-year-old made her triumphant return in 2012 and quickly ascended the ranks to become a top contender in Sochi.

MSNBC HIGHLIGHTS:
•    Men’s Hockey - Russia vs. Slovenia: The host begins its Olympic run LIVE against Olympic newcomer Slovenia. Led by Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin, last year’s NHL MVP, Russia is under immense pressure to deliver gold in front of its hockey-mad home fans. After the Soviet Union and the Unified Team won eight of the 10 men’s Olympic tournaments from 1956-92, Russia has been unable to win gold in its five appearances.
•    Men’s Curling: Two-time Olympian John Shuster has the Olympic experience required to guide the U.S. team through a deep men’s field that includes favorites Canada, Sweden and Great Britain.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):
•    Men’s Figure Skating - Gold Medal Final: Three-time world champion Patrick Chan of Canada remains the favorite for Olympic gold, but after winning each of his consecutive world titles by smaller and smaller margins, it appears that the rest of the deep men’s field is catching up with the 23-year-old from Toronto. The Olympic champion will be decided with the men’s free skate, where Chan attempts to win Canada’s first gold medal in men’s figure skating.
•    Men’s Alpine Skiing - Super Combined Gold Medal Final: Alpine Skiing’s combined event was won by Americans at the past two Games. Ted Ligety won in 2006, when it was the combined (with two slalom runs, instead of just one), and Bode Miller took gold in 2010 under the current super-combined format of one downhill and one slalom. Both return to give the Americans two strong medal threats. Ligety is the reigning world champion, while Miller is rounding back into form after missing last season with a knee injury.
•    Women’s Freestyle Skiing - Aerials Gold Medal Final: Vancouver Olympian Ashley Caldwell has been impressive in her return to competition after tearing both of her ACLs,but Caldwell and the rest of the aerialists will likely be chasing reigning world champion Xu Mengtao, who leads a deep Chinese team.
•    Women’s Skeleton - Gold Medal Final Runs: It’s been a long and winding road for Noelle Pikus-Pace, a Utah mother of two who finished fourth in Vancouver then retired from the sport.

•    Men’s Short Track - 1000m Gold Medal Final: This is arguably the best event for top American J.R.
