NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):



Women's Alpine Skiing - Super Combined Gold Medal Final: The super combined, which involves one downhill run and one slalom run in a single day, is the first event on the women's alpine program. Julia Mancuso, whose three Olympic medals are the most by any female American ski racer, should be in contention four years after winning silver in this event in Vancouver. She'll have to be faster than a deep field of European contenders, led by German reigning champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch.



Men's Short Track - 1500m Gold Medal Final: The first day of competition in short track SPEED skating is headlined by the final of the men's 1500m, one of the two events in which top American J.R. Celski won bronze in Vancouver. Celski will be challenged by Russia's Viktor Ahn, who missed Vancouver because of a knee injury but won three gold medals in Torino skating for his native South Korea as Ahn Hyun-Soo. Apolo Ohno's former rival has since changed his nationality and his name, but he remains among the best in the sport. He may have a chance to win Russia's first ever short track medal.



Men's Freestyle Skiing - Moguls Gold Medal Final: One of the lasting images of the Vancouver Games occurred when Alex Bilodeau became the first Canadian to win Olympic gold on home soil and celebrated his victory with his older brother Frederic, who has cerebral palsy. Bilodeau will look to defend his title in Sochi, but his teammate Mikael Kingsubry edged him for the world title last March. The Americans cannot be counted out either, as they have won a medal in this event in four consecutive Games.



Men's SPEED Skating - 500m Gold Medal Final: Two all-out sprints determine who gets gold in this distance. Wisconsin native Tucker Fredricks, who specializes in the 500m, makes his third Olympic appearance in Sochi, where he will be joined on the ice by American record holder Mitch Whitmore.



NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Daytime):



Men's Biathlon - 12.5km Pursuit Gold Medal Final: Biathlon remains the only winter sport in which the U.S. has never won an Olympic medal, but New York native Tim Burke, who earned bronze in this event earlier this season, will look to change that in Sochi.



Men's Freestyle Skiing - Moguls Competition: One of the lasting images of the Vancouver Games occurred when Alex Bilodeau became the first Canadian to win Olympic gold on home soil and celebrated his victory with his older brother Frederic, who has cerebral palsy. Bilodeau will look to defend his title in Sochi, but his teammate Mikael Kingsubry edged him for the world title last March. The Americans cannot be counted out either, as they have won a medal in this event in four consecutive Games.





NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Late Night):



Women's Short Track - Competition: Top American Aly Dudek looks to advance in short track's shortest event, the four-and-a-half-lap 500m.



Women's Luge - Competition: Germany is aiming 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 will be making her third Olympic appearance in Sochi.





NBCSN HIGHLIGHTS:



Women's Hockey - USA vs. Switzerland: The U.S. women, who have won medals at all four Olympic tournaments but no gold since 1998, continue their pursuit LIVE against Switzerland. They may have a chance to clinch a bye to the semifinals today.

Men's SPEED Skating - 500m Gold Medal Final: Two all-out sprints determine who gets gold in this distance LIVE. Wisconsin native Tucker Fredricks, who specializes in the 500m, makes his third Olympic appearance in Sochi, where he will be joined on the ice by American record holder Mitch Whitmore.



Women's Luge - Competition: Germany is hoping to slide to its fifth straight gold in this event, as competitors from several other nations look primed to crash the podium LIVE 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 will be making her third Olympic appearance in Sochi.





USA HIGHLIGHTS:



Women's Curling - USA vs. Switzerland: Sixteen years after her Olympic debut in Nagano, Erika Brown returns to the Games as the skip of the U.S. women's curling team. The U.S. women will be seeking their first Olympic curling medal after finishing fourth at the 2013 World Championships. Sweden, Great Britain and Canada are among the top international teams.



CNBC HIGHLIGHTS:



Men's Curling - USA vs. Norway: Two-time Olympian John Shuster has the Olympic experience required to guide the U.S. team through a deep men's field. The 31-year-old Minnesota native was part of the 2006 Olympic team that collected the first U.S. Olympic curling medal and then led the Americans in Vancouver. Norway - whose showing in Vancouver is better remembered for the team's bold checkered pants than its silver medal - is among the medal contenders.

Women's Freestyle Skiing - Slopestyle Gold Medal Final: 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.



Men's Snowboarding - Halfpipe Gold Medal Final: 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. Known as "I-Pod," Podladtchikov dubs his signature move the "YOLO flip," which stands for "You Only Live Once."



Women's Ski Jumping - Individual K-95 Gold Medal Final: 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.



NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Daytime):



Women's Cross-Country - Individual Sprint Gold Medal Final: This 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.



Men's Cross-Country - Individual Sprint Gold Medal Final: 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.
