The United States competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, from February 7 to 23, 2014. Team USA consisted of 230 athletes competing in all 15 sports.

After winning an Olympic record 37 medals at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, the United States had a somewhat disappointing performance during these games. Although the delegation ranked second in overall medals with 28, it ranked out of the top three in gold medals (with a total of nine) for the first time since Nagano in 1998 when it placed 6th in overall medals and 5th in gold medals.[5] In long track speedskating, the U.S. matched its medal-less results from 1984 and 1956.[6] In figure skating, the U.S. won no medals in the men's or women's singles events for the first time since 1936.[7]

Conversely, at the Sanki Sliding Center, the United States won more medals (seven) than any other nation.[8] Steven Holcomb and Steven Langton won the first U.S. medal (a bronze) in two-man bobsled in 62 years, while Erin Hamlin earned the first singles luge medal ever for the United States (also bronze). In skeleton, Noelle Pikus-Pace and Matthew Antoine won silver and bronze respectively, the first U.S. medals in that sport since 2002. Overall, the U.S. won four medals in bobsled events, two in skeleton, and one in luge.

Of the nine gold medals won by Team USA, seven were won by first-time Olympians. In snowboarding, Sage Kotsenburg and Jamie Anderson won gold in the inaugural slopestyle events, and Kaitlyn Farrington won the women's halfpipe. In freestyle skiing, Joss Christensen won the inaugural men's slopestyle, David Wise won men's halfpipe, and Maddie Bowman won women's halfpipe. Eighteen-year-old alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin won gold in the slalom in her Olympic debut. Among returning Olympians, Meryl Davis and Charlie White won the first American gold in ice dancing,[9] and Ted Ligety won gold in giant slalom becoming the first American man to win two Olympic golds in alpine skiing.[10] Fellow alpine skier Bode Miller, competing in his fifth winter games, became the oldest alpine medalist at age 36, winning bronze in the super-G.[11]

The 2014 Games marked the first time a U.S. Olympic team competed in Russia, as the United States and 64 western countries did not take part in the 1980 Summer Olympics held in Moscow due to the Soviet war in Afghanistan. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden did not attend the 2014 Winter Olympics.[12] American nordic combined skier Todd Lodwick was the flag bearer of Team USA for the Parade of Nations during the opening ceremony.[13] Four-time ice hockey Olympian Julie Chu was the flag bearer during the closing ceremonies.[14]
