1. Jamie Poser

Sport: Bobsled
Hometown: Newtown

Jamie looks to improve on her bronze medal performance in Sochi in 2014. She has plenty of World Championship experience and we think she can bring the gold back to Pennsylvania!

2. John-Henry Krueger

Sport: Short track speed skating
Hometown: Pittsburgh

John Henry is a favorite to win the gold medal in the short track speed skating events. He has already compiled impressive results in the US Olympic team trials, winning the men’s 500m, 1000m, 1500m, and the overall.

3. Summer Britcher

Sport: Luge
Hometown: Glen Rock

Summer has plenty of experience and won a 2012 gold medal in the youth Olympic games in the team relay. She also has World Championship experience, competing from 2015-2017. Most impressively, she has 5 individual career victories and is the all-time leader in USA luge singles’ history. Our bet is that she’ll get another victory and possibly a medal in Pyongyang!

4. Jayson Terdiman

Sport: Luge
Hometown: Berwick

This is the 2nd Olympic games for Jason. He will compete in the luge doubles along with teammate Matt Mortensen. He looks to improve on his 6th place finish in the team relay in Sochi.

5. Ryan Gunderson

Sport: Ice Hockey
Hometown: Bensalem
