Day 4 of the 2014 Winter Olympics features eight gold medal finals in a wide range of sports. Shaun White, Andy Newell, Keri Herman, and Devin Logan will compete for gold in what could be Team USA's biggest day in Sochi. 

The women's cross country sprint event represents the best chance for what would be only the second Olympic medal in U.S. cross-country history. It will be contested in the freestyle technique, which is the stronger technique of Alaska's Kikkan Randall, the 2009 world silver medalist.

Two-time Olympian Andy Newell has been the top U.S. sprinter in recent years, but he will be racing against some of the top international skiers, including Norwegian star Petter Northug.

Germany is hoping to slide to its fifth straight gold in this event, as competitors from several other nations try to crash the podium in Sochi. The veteran leader of the U.S. squad is 2009 world champion Erin Hamlin, a 27-year-old from the small town of Remsen, New York, who makes her third Olympic appearance in Sochi.

Keri Herman, a 31-year-old who took up competitive skiing after growing up as a hockey player, and Devin Logan, a promising contender in both halfpipe and slopestyle, are among the Americans who should compete for medals.

In one of the most highly anticipated events of the Games, action sports icon Shaun White will attempt to become the first American man to win the same individual event at three Olympic Winter Games. Standing in his way will be 15-year-old Japanese phenom Ayumu Hirano and a de facto home favorite, Russian-born Swiss rider Iouri Podladtchikov.

Women's ski jumping makes its long-awaited Olympic debut. After tearing her ACL in August, 19-year-old Park City native Sarah Hendrickson, the reigning world champion, is attempting to return to full strength in time to become the event's first gold medalist. The other top teen in the event is 17-year-old Japanese phenom Sara Takanashi, who placed second behind Hendrickson at the 2013 World Championships.
