Relay Day 1: The Women

I am really, really looking forward to seeing what happens in the women's relay at Val di Fiemme. While Norway is obviously the top team, anything can happen in the relay, and the cluster of teams one tier lower than NOR includes the American squad, which will start two Val di Fiemme gold medalists, along with Liz Stephen. Finland, Sweden, and maybe Germany and Russia are right there in the hunt.

My picks:

  1. Norway (Weng, Johaug, Steira, Bjorgen)
  2. USA (Bjornsen, Randall, Stevens, Diggins)
  3. Sweden (Ingemarsdotter, Wiken, Haag, Kalla)
