Whose gonna jump highest? Who's gonna ski fastest? Who's gonna land a quadruple lutz with a double twist? Read on to see Kidzworld's top picks to win a medal at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

US Women's Team - Ice Hockey - The only teams that have a chance to win the gold are the United States and Canada. Cammi Granato and the Americans are the defending Olympic champs and they'll be playing in front of a home crowd so look for Team USA all the way.

Janica and Ivica Kostelic - Alpine Skiing - This Croation brother and sister could both take home a gold medal to Mom and Dad in the slalom event.

Picabo Street - Alpine Skiing - She's already been busted by the Colorado ski patrol for going too fast. Picabo will be back on the podium for the Super G in Salt Lake City.

Jasey-Jay Anderson - Snowboarding - Jasey-Jay is Canada's best hope for a snowboarding gold. He's considered the best overall snowboarder in the world and will be the man to beat in the parallel giant slalom.

Chris Soule - Skeleton - Chris is a former movie stuntman (he appeared in G.I. Jane.) He's perfect for an invent that involves sliding on a sled head first at 70 miles per hour with no brakes. He's gonna slide right into a medal for the US.

Michelle Kwan - Figure Skating - She's won four world titles and an Olympic silver medal in Nagano. Michelle's the favorite to win the gold in Salt Lake City but will have stiff competition from her fellow Americans, Sarah Hughes and Sasha Cohen.

Adam Malysz - Ski Jumping - This guy has flown higher than any other ski jumper all year. Things won't change in ,Salt Lake City and he'll grab a medal for his home country of Polland.

Gianni Romme - Speed Skating - The first time Gianni tried skating on a frozen pond in the Netherlands he crashed head first into a tree. He's much better on skates now. He won two gold medals in Nagano and now holds three world records.

Per Elofsson - Cross-Country Skiing - Per trains by running through muddy swamps during the summer. The Swede could become the first cross-country skier to win four Olympic gold medals in the same year.

Jacqui Cooper - Freestyle Skier - The Australian daredevil has no fear and will pull off aerial maneuvers other women won't even attempt.

Who's your pick to win a gold in Salt Lake City? to Kidzworld.
