SALT LAKE CITY - Former Utah skiers Torin Koos (cross country) and Annelies Cook (biathlon) have both been nominated to the U.S. Olympic Team.

The formal naming of the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team by the United States Olympic Committee is set for Jan. 27.

Koos, who has won seven U.S. sprint titles, is competing in his fourth Olympics (2002, '06, '10). He was a three-time All-America skier at Utah. He finished seventh in the classic at the 2001 NCAA Championships while placing fourth in the classic race in 2002 with a sixth-place run in the freestyle race. He also ran track and cross country for the Utes. Koos graduated from Utah in 2004 with a degree in communications.
