Another Olympic newbie at Sochi 2014 and another event where New Zealand has genuine medal potential at Pyeongchang 2018. Kiwi stars like Jossi Wells have plenty of competition with big names from the US and Europe snapping at their twin-tips. In the women’s comp, Norway’s Tiril Sjaastad Christiansen will be out for a ‘threepeat’ after scoring successive gold medals in this event at WGNZ 2013 and 2015.
