Already, though, you can find plenty of information about the Sochi Games at sltrib.com/olympics. The page will be updated virtually around the clock once the Games begin.
On the page — in addition to the latest news in dozens of enterprise and breaking stories by Michael C. Lewis, columns by Kurt Kragthorpe and photographs by Chris Detrick — you’ll find a schedule, results and an up-to-date medal count.
You’ll also find mini-profiles of 65 athletes with ties to Utah, 15 of whom are Utah natives.
Of those 15, five are considered serious gold medal contenders.
