Five members of the Sochi-bound 2014 U.S. Olympic team will be featured on four different covers of the upcoming Olympic preview edition of Sports Illustrated, according to a Jan. 29 announcement posted to the popular magazine's website.

Reigning national ladies' figure skating champion Gracie Gold, alpine skiing legend-in-the-making Mikaela Shiffrin, and five-time Olympic medalist Bode Miller will each have their own respective covers, while snowboarders Arielle Gold and Jamie Anderson will share the fourth.

Gracie Gold, who bested a talented field of skaters including former national champ Ashley Wagner to claim her first U.S. championship on Jan. 11, shared her reaction to her cover shot via Twitter on Jan. 29, writing simply "Such an honor!!"

Arielle Gold shared a similar sentiment with her own followers, tweeting "So pumped to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated with @jamieandersonsnow! Leaving for Sochi on Saturday!"

Per the announcement, the issue will feature a wealth of Olympic related content, including more information and back stories for each of the featured athletes, as well as medal predictions for each event to be contested in Sochi.

The 2014 Olympic Winter Games will kick off officially on Feb. 7 with opening ceremonies in Sochi, Russia.
