USOC conducting Facebook balloting for best Team USA moments in Sochi Olympics

See also

To commemorate the 230-member Team USA successes at the Sochi Olympics, the United States Olympic Committee is conducting a poll for voting in four categories.

Through its Facebook page, you can vote for best male, female and team performance, in addition to the "best moment."

Each category is sure to bring back memories of both medal and even non-medal performances.

Up for best male are four gold medalists: Joss Christensen (ski slopestyle), Sage Kotsenburg (snowboard slopestyle), Ted Ligety (alpine giant slalom), and David Wise (ski halfpipe).

Nominated medaling ladies include: Jamie Anderson (snowboard slopestyle gold), Maddie Bowman (ski halfpipe gold), Erin Hamlin (luge bronze), and Mikaela Shiffrin (alpine slalom gold).

A trio of teams can be selected: Meryl Davis/Charlie White (ice dancing gold), Elana Meyers/Lauryn Williams (bobsled silver), and Steve Holcomb/pushers (bobsled bronze in two events).

But hands-down the most popular vote will be for best memorable moment. The following five choices are, this time, listed by my preference:

1) Men's Ski Slopestyle - Podium sweep

2) Men's Ice Hockey - TJ Oshie shoot-out goals

3) Noelle Pikus-Pace - Skeleton silver medal mom

4) Bode Miller - Oldest alpine medalist

5) Short Track Speed Skating - Team Relay bronze

Vote and vote often through March 21! Then, on April 7, the winners will be announced during the Best of U.S. Awards Show to be telecast on the NBC Sports Network.
