Sochi is how many days away?!

77. It’s hard to believe we are on the cusp of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. It seems like only yesterday Canada was preparing to welcome the world in Vancouver. Now, it’s Sochi’s turn.

sochi-2014-logoRegardless of the event or sport, expectations for Canadian athletes are high. The team will be looking to duplicate and hopefully exceed their outstanding efforts in 2010, where Canada finished at the top of the medal rankings with 26 (14 gold, 7 silver, 5 bronze).

The Opening Ceremony flag bearer will soon be announced. I’m predicting hockey legend Hayley Wickenheiser gets the call. This will likely be her last go at the Olympics. It would be a fitting way to honour an athlete who has done so much for her sport, not only in Canada, but around the world. She’s also one of the proudest Canadians you’ll ever meet. Her teammate, Danielle Goyette, carried the maple leaf in 2006.
