    United States' Julia Mancuso catches her breath after a women's downhill training run for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.

    The first full week of competition begins in Sochi Monday with medals in women's super combined downhill skiing, men's moguls and speed skating.

    Team USA's Alpine skier Julia Mancuso, the silver medalist in Vancouver, won a bronze medal in super combined -- a two-part event that includes downhill and slalom. On the moguls course, Patrick Deneen will be America's best hope for a medal, though heavy favorites going into the final are Canadians Alex Bilodeau and Michael Kingsbury.

    Men's curling is making its colorful debut to kick off the first full week of competition in Sochi, with the reigning Olympic silver medal team — the Norwegians, famed for their chaotic curling pants — taking on underdog USA. Eleven other round-robin games were on tap for the day, too.
