OREM, Utah -- Former Utah Valley University track & field standouts Chris Fogt and Noelle Pikus-Pace will represent the U.S. at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and both are in the hunt to carry the flag for their country at next week's Opening Ceremonies.
NBC is currently conducting a poll to vote for who you think deserves to bear the flag for the U.S. and both former Wolverines are listed on the ballot. Visit NBCOlympics.com to cast your vote(s).
Fogt, who hails from Alpine, Utah, will participate in the sport of bobsled with fellow Utahn Steven Holcomb, who won Gold at the 2010 Olympics, while Pikus-Pace (Orem, Utah), who placed fourth in the skeleton four years ago, is deemed as the favorite by many to win Gold this year.
