PALM DESERT, September 22, 2017 – There have been only two Winter Games in Asia, both in Japan: Sapporo in 1964 and Nagano in 1998.

Between the two, the United States won 21 medals, but thanks to the athletes we’ve been profiling over the last couple of weeks, Team USA stands to win a lot more in PyeongChang in February.

We take a look at five more American stars in Freestyle Skiing, Luge, Snowboarding and Speed Skating in our Lane One commentary, along with previews of this weekend’s top attractions in international sports:

= p. 7/Athletics: Another world record coming in Sunday’s Berlin Marathon?
= p. 8/Cycling: Going Dutch: Annemiek van Vleuten and Tom Dumoulin win Worlds Time Trials;
= p. 16/Football: Lindsey Horan and Alex Morgan key U.S. win in friendly over New Zealand.
