Team USA’s Class of 2014 Awards
By Seth Rubinroit
Graduation season is here and Team USA decided to join in on the fun, crowning this year’s most memorable athletes.
Here are some of our favorites:
Most Athletic: Eddy Alvarez
Even when compared to fellow Olympians, Eddy Alvarez stood out because of the range of his athleticism. Less than six months after winning a silver medal in short track speed skating in Sochi, Alvarez signed a contract to play baseball in the Chicago White Sox organization.

Best Dancer: Meryl Davis

Cutest Couple: Gus Kenworthy and the Dogs He Rescued
Slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who won a silver medal in Sochi, bonded with the stray dogs he found in Russia. With the help of the Humane Society International, he successfully brought them to the United States. Two were quickly adopted, and he kept the other two for himself.
Honorable mention goes to Olympic ice dancing champion Charlie White and former ice dancer Tanith Belbin, who got engaged earlier this month.
