Who to Follow During the Winter Olympics

Where do you go for the latest info in a world so full of info you cant possibly read it all? For the big picture, Sochi2014 has a great, easy-to-maneuver website with schedules, results, photos, videos, and news. But that information source doesn't point out the hot ticket items. Which athletes are twittering, facebooking, Instantagraming, and posting to their own websites? Who are the best athletes and what are the events to watch?
