Meet the U.S. Speed Skating Team for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China!

The U.S. Speed Skating team has the potential to bring home the most medals in over a decade. In 2014, the team felt great disappointment bringing home no medals, and in 2018, when they brought home one medal — a lone bronze in the women’s team pursuit. However, this squad is confident to take this team to new heights.

“I’ve been around for a while, and it’s one of the strongest teams I’ve ever witnessed,” said second-time Olympic team skater Mia Manganello Kilburg per NBC Sports.

Meet the team and use their schedule below so you won’t miss out on an event:
