Solo Missions in Sochi


Tucker Murphy, Bermuda's lone participant, made a global fashion statement with his Bermuda shorts during Friday's opening ceremony.

While the United States sent a record 230 athletes, including 105 women, to the Sochi Olympics, several countries dispatched significantly smaller delegations. Eighteen countries have just one representative competing at this year’s Olympic Games. We salute these lone national heroes.
