Wednesday, Feb. 21

What to watch: Can a skier be considered an all-time great without an Olympic gold medal? Marcel Hirscher of Austria thinks so, but he’ll try to add one to his résumé in the slalom.

Elana Meyers Taylor and Jamie Greubel Poser, medalists in Sochi four years ago, are back to lead their teams in the two-man bobsled. The Dutch could add to their speedskating medal haul with golds in the men’s and women’s team pursuit, but Japan is a favorite in the women’s event, and New Zealand — with just one Winter Olympics medal ever — could find the podium in the men’s.
