The United States will bring 230 athletes to the Sochi Olympics, the largest delegation ever for any country at the Winter Games.

Todd Lodwick in Nordic combined will become the first American to compete in six Winter Olympics. Lodwick's teammate, Billy Demong, and skier Bode Miller are headed to their fifth; only three U.S. Winter Olympians other than Lodwick had previously accomplished that feat.

Of the 106 returning Olympians, 49 have won medals — 13 of them gold.

Thirty-eight states are represented, including 20 athletes hailing from California, 19 from both Colorado and Minnesota, and 18 from New York.

Miller has won five medals and needs three more to tie short track speedskater Apolo Anton Ohno as the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian.

The U.S. Olympic Committee said Monday that the oldest member of the team is 46-year-old curler Ann Swishelm, while the youngest is 15-year-old freestyle skier Maggie Voisin.
