Watch NBC’s lookahead to 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics

Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, Mikaela Shiffrin, 16-year-old Chloe Kim and prodigy Nathan Chen. They're just some of what you can expect in the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics.

The PyeongChang Winter Olympics, the first Winter Games in South Korea, are a little more than one year away.

A number of U.S. stars are establishing themselves in this winter sports season as medal contenders.

NBC Sports takes a look at some of those names to watch, as the U.S. looks to return to the top of the medal standings.

Russia earned the most medals at home in Sochi in 2014 with 33 medals, with the U.S. coming in second with 28. Those standings could change if Russian results are stripped due to its ongoing doping scandal.

The U.S. has never topped the total medal standings at a Winter Olympics outside of North America. It led the way at Lake Placid 1932 and Vancouver 2010.
