On the Cover:
Mikaela Shiffrin is still dealing with the death of her father and the crushing weight of expectations—so the dominant skier of her generation has recalibrated her idea of Olympic success heading into Beijing, according to Stephanie Apstein. Speedskater Erin Jackson began transitioning from inline to ice skating just five years ago, but she’s already primed to make a run at a gold medal in Beijing. Michael Rosenberg covers Jessie Diggins’ return to the Olympic stage after a history-making 2021 season, followed by her winning Team USA’s first Olympic medal in cross-country skiing in 2018. U.S. hockey’s Abby Roque, profiled by Alex Prewitt, leads a new generation’s quest for glory while breaking new ground in her sport as an Indigenous player.
