Maybe it's the schedule. All the events we are good at are bunched together in the first week.

Somewhat, but not entirely. Starting with the Salt Lake City Olympics, the United States has been very strong in the Winter games. Some of it is the new sports that have been added. But much of it is improvement in sports where we have never even been competitive.

Look at the Nordic combined. We have never even been an afterthought in this sport. Forget being a medal contender -- we would have been lucky to have one competitor sniffing the top 25. This Olympics -- 2nd, 4th, and 6th...plus the winner was actually born in the United States.

A lot of energy and resources have been put into improving our winter sports. It was a long time coming, but it seems to be coming together.
