The US will send its second-largest Winter Olympic contingent to compete in Beijing next month, with 222 athletes vying to bring home medals after a disappointing outing in Pyeongchang.
The US fell far short of their medals target four years ago, bringing back 23, the fewest they have claimed since the 1998 Nagano Games.
The 2022 roster includes 99 returning Olympians – four of them five-time Olympians – the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) said, making it the most experienced squad that the US has ever sent to a Winter Games.
“This is an exciting 2022 US Olympic Team – a great mix of returning champions building on remarkable legacies and first-time Olympians eager to show what they can do on the biggest stage in sport,” Rick Adams, the USOPC chief of sport performance, said in a statement.
“The dedication of these Team USA athletes to train and compete in this unpredictable global environment is exemplary.”
The roster includes the most female athletes the US has sent to a Winter Olympics, with 107 women expected to compete.
The oldest member of the team is 40-year-old snowboarder Nick Baumgartner, while the youngest is 16-year-old figure skater Alysa Liu.
