The athletes are getting ready for the games to start, including the U.S. bobsled teams.
The men's team said the competition will be tough, especially against the Russian and German teams.
They also said the track will be challenging, with its 17 curves.
On the U.S. men’s team is Steve Langton, a local from Melrose.
He stopped to pose for a picture with 7's Nancy Chen Monday. He won't be racing for a while, but said getting used to the conditions and the track is key.
Langton said bobsledding is kind of like riding a roller coaster.
“It's like the fastest, craziest roller coaster you could ever find in an amusement park without some of the safety features ...no seat belts, no padding…It’s just a couple handles and some fiberglass,” said Langton
The U.S. men's team is currently the gold medal favorite in Sochi.
