Sports » Athletes with Utah ties pick up 14 medals, including five golds, in Sochi.

That combination meant that nearly 70 athletes who live at least part-time in Utah competed in Sochi, with some of the medalists even hoping to expand on their triumphs in Pyeongchang.

Freeskier Devin Logan, for example, who lives in Park City and won silver in slopestyle, hopes to also compete in the halfpipe in Pyeongchang, something she couldn’t quite accomplish in Sochi.

Meanwhile, snowboardcross bronze medalist Alex Deibold was imagining a day when he might have to face much greater expectations than he did here, entering the competition known mostly for spending the Vancouver Games as a wax technician for his teammates.

"It’s been kind of nice not to have that spotlight and that pressure," the part-time Park City resident told USA Today. "You look at Shaun White, and I’m sure people are gonna pick him apart and tear him limb from limb because he didn’t win. That pressure is pretty unbelievable. Hopefully I’ll have to learn how to deal with it at some point."
