    Northern California Athletes Ready to Compete in Sochi

    NBC Bay Area's Janelle Wang profiles some of the top Northern California athletes who will try to bring home an Olympic medal in figure skating, snowboarding and skiing. (Published Monday, Jan. 27, 2014)

    They've trained and sacrificed all to get to this moment.

    Some Northern California athletes will succeed, others will just fall short.

    NBC Bay Area's Janelle Wang traveled to Breckinridge, Colorado, one of the final stops on the Road to Sochi. That's where two Tahoe halfpipe freeskiers, Maddie Bowman and David Wise, clinched their spots on Team USA.

    Less than a week later, Tahoe Slopestyle Snowboarders Chas Guldemond and Jamie Anderson stamped their tickets to Sochi, as well as another halfpipe freeskier, Brita Sigourney of Monterey.

    Janelle Wang sits down with these elite athletes, plus young figure skating phenom Polina Edmunds of San Jose.

    Watch their amazing stories of endurance and perseverance even in the most difficult of situations.
