The opening ceremonies are today for the Winter Olympics in Sochi. The Winter Olympics has a previously existing sport in which the United States has never medaled.

What is that sport?
1. biathlon
2. freestyle skiing
3. skeleton



The answer is: 1. biathlon

According to the website for CBS Sports, the biathlon is the only previously existing Olympic sport in which the United States has never medaled. An American does have a chance this time. Tim Burke won a World Championship in the biathlon last year. The CBS Website also notes the U.S. has also never won gold in ski jumping, luge, cross-country skiing or curling. However, an American has earned silver and bronze medals in those competitions.
