Preview and Predictions for the 2014 US Figure Skating Championships
Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

With Olympic dreams poised to hang in the balance, the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships are underway, with the significant medal competitions slated to begin this Thursday and conclude Sunday.

As it always does, the national championship is sure to deliver drama, intrigue and memorable moments in bunches, as the U.S. Olympic figure skating team that will head to Sochi next month gets assembled. Based on their performances in Boston this week, skaters will earn their way onto the ladies', men’s, pairs and ice dance teams that will compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Adding to the intrigue is the lack of a dominant favorite in any event, save for the ice dance competition. Indeed, the U.S. Olympic figure skating team is in a period of transition, and that will provide new stars to follow, storylines to gravitate to and ultimately an underdog squad to cheer for against the world’s best in Sochi.

Here’s a look at the skaters to watch, the stories to follow and some predictions on what to expect from the U.S. Figure Skating Championships this week.
