Igls, Austria (SportsNetwork.com) - Noelle Pikus-Pace and Katie Uhlaender will represent the United States in the women's skeleton competition at the 2014 Olympics.

John Daly, Matt Antoine and Kyle Tress will slide for the men in Sochi.

"The quality of this skeleton Olympic Team is amazing," said U.S. Bobsled & Skeleton Federation CEO Darrin Steele. "Anything can happen at the Games, so we take nothing for granted. But if these five athletes give their best, any one of them is capable of bringing home a medal."

Pikus-Pace was fourth at the 2010 Games in Vancouver, while Uhlaender will compete in her third Olympics. She was sixth in the 2006 Games in Torino.

Daly was 17th in the 2010 Games, while Antoine and Tress will make their Olympic debuts.
