French Women's Alpine Ski Racing Team

On the 2013 World Cup circuit the French Women's Alpine Ski Racing Team managed five podiums, but no gold medals. Tessa Worley accounted for four medals (one silver and three bronze), while Marie Marchand-Arvier took a bronze. However, at the Schladming 2013 FIS World Ski Championships the women popped two gold medals - Downhill by Marion Rolland and Giant Slalom by Worley.

This team has a good mix of seasoned veterans and youngbloods eager to medal at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games. Based on their past performances on the FIS World Cup Circuit and the 2013 Worlds, this team shouldn't be taken lightly.
