There were no surprises when the U.S. Ski Team announced its squad for the Sochi Olympics: Teenager Mikaela Shiffrin was on the list and, of course, Lindsey Vonn was not.

Five-time Olympic medalist Bode Miller made his fifth squad Sunday, while 2006 Olympic gold medalists Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso also earned spots. In all, the Americans had nine women and 11 men on the team.

Shiffrin could be the headliner in Russia, especially with Vonn staying home to recuperate following another operation on her right knee. The 18-year-old Shiffrin is having quite a season, winning three World Cup slalom races. She will be counted on to help the Americans try to top their record eight-medal haul in Vancouver four years ago.
