Moguls skier Hannah Kearney, the defending Olympic champion and top medal hope in Sochi, headlines the nine-member team, from which Park City aerialist Dylan Ferguson was left off.

It’s the second time Ferguson will miss the Olympics; he made the team for the 2010 Vancouver Games, but suffered complications from an appendectomy and had to withdraw. He had not reached the podium at a World Cup event this season, and was passed over for Mac Bohannon.

Cook, Caldwell and McPhie all competed in Vancouver, where Wilson’s brother Bryon won a bronze medal. None of them won a medal. Former world champion Patrick Deneen is the other moguls skier named to the men’s team, while Heidi Kloser and Eliza Outtrim join Kearney and McPhie on the women’s team.
