Here are the Olympians to watch in NBC's primetime coverage on Thursday, February 15 beginning at 7:00 p.m.

•   Alpine Skiing - Women's Slalom, First Run
Coming off a winning performance in the giant slalom, Mikaela Shiffrin comes in as a heavy favorite and looks to defend her Olympic title in women's slalom. 

•   Alpine Skiing - Men's Super-G

Lake Placid native Andrew Weibrecht is an outside contender for a third-consecutive medal in the men’s super-G.

•   Skeleton - Men's Gold Medal Final Runs
The final runs of men’s skeleton feature reigning world champ Martins Dukurs of Latvia and South Korea’s own Yun Sung-Bin, with Americans Matt Antoine (2014 bronze) and John Daly lead the Americans. Daly returns after heartbreak in Sochi, where he dropped from contention when his sled came out of the groove.

•   Women's Snowboard Cross Gold Medal Final
Team USA's Lindsey Jacobellis, who memorably fell short of gold at the 2006 Games, eyes redemption in women's snowboard cross.

•   Figure Skating - Men's Short Program
American Nathan Chen , the first skater to land five quadruple jumps in a single program, leads a talented and experienced field of international skaters. Chen will face tough competition from defending Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu and teenager Shomo Uno , who placed first and second, respectively, at the World Championships in April. Adam Rippon , a member of the team that captured bronze earlier this week in the team event, and Vincent Zhou , the 2017 World junior champion, will also represent the U.S.
