Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

"Hey, you kids...get off my medal stand!"

OK, so those won't be the exact words delivered by 20- and 30-something athletes to their teenage competition at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. But it wouldn't be too surprising if some of the older skiers, skaters and snowboarders muttered something close to that under their breaths.

It'd be hard to blame them for the anxiety. After reviewing top contenders in each of the scheduled events at the Games, it's clear teenagers are well represented. 

Medal forecasts across the board include youngsters at nearly every turn, with several individual competitions likely to be flat-out dominated by athletes born in 1994 or later. 

We've assembled a list of 15 teens who seem destined to make an impact on the world's biggest stage in February. Click through to take a look at our picks, and feel free to drop a comment or two with your own selections.
