Monday offers the chance for a first look at Britain's short track skaters in Sochi.
The men's 1500m medals are up for grabs in this discipline, with Jack Whelbourne considered Britain's top prospect.
However, South Korea and Canada are expected to be the dominant forces, with Russia's Viktor Ahn among those in contention.
Ahn won this event back in 2006 in Turin while racing for South Korea under the name Ahn Hyun-soo. He changed his name when he switched to Russia ahead of the Sochi Games, citing differences with his Korean coaches.
Earlier in the day, Britain's male curlers, the world bronze medallists, start their Olympic campaign with a round-robin game against hosts Russia.
Britain's women curlers face Sweden - the team they beat to win last year's world title - in their first group game.
In alpine skiing, the one to watch in the women's super combined is Maria Hofl-Riesch, Germany's defending world and Olympic champion.
Another in contention is Marie-Michele Gagnon, who won the only super combined women's World Cup this season, so becoming the first Canadian ever to reach the podium in this discipline.
Later in the day, there will be a battle for medals in the men's moguls. Canadian duo Mikael Kingsbury and Alex Bilodeau (the winner in Vancouver four years ago) have been utterly dominant in moguls this season, but American Patrick Deneen will try to stand in their way during an event which runs late into the Sochi night.
Medals are also up for grabs in the biathlon (men's pursuit) and men's 500m speed skating, while the women's ice hockey group games also continue and the women's singles first and second runs take place in the luge.
