Olympic Athletes Who Call Massachusetts Home

It’s that time again: when you snuggle up with a blanket and some hot chocolate in front of the TV in order to watch other people do stuff in the cold. Also known as the Winter Olympics.

Obviously we all love and support Team USA, but did you know that forty-two of the athletes on Team USA are from New England? And of those forty-two, ten are from our beloved state of Massachusetts. Not bad, huh?

That means that Mass is tied for ninth-most athletes competing in Sochi out of all fifty states. Not to mention the fact that there are multiple Olympic coaches representing the state as well. The events range from ice hockey to skiing and even bobsled. Here’s a peek at who to look out for in the coming weeks:
