Lindsey Vonn

This World Cup alpine ski racer has long since been someone we've admired. Lindsey Vonn has done some pretty incredible things in her Olympic career, so we can't wait to see what 2018 has in store for this powerful woman.


Erin Jackson

You might not have guessed this by how athletic she is, but Erin Jackson only learned how to speed skate four months prior to qualifying for the Olympics. Plus, she's the first black woman on the long-track team's roster. We're rooting for you, Erin.
