Four years ago at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, the Canadian men's long track speed skating pursuit team stunned the sports world by beating the United States to win the gold medal. On Saturday at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Lucas Makowsky of Regina, Saskatchewan, Mathieu Giroux of Montreal, Quebec and Denny Morrison of Chetwynd, British Columbia will try to repeat their magic when they face the Polish trio of Zbigniew Brodka, Konrad Niedzwiedzki and Jan Szymanski (CBC, 6:50 a.m.).

Meanwhile in men's parallel slalom snowboarding, there are two Canadians who are in the hunt for a medal (CBC, 2:30 a.m.). Blueberry farmer Jasey-Jay Anderson of Val-Morin, Quebec, who won a gold medal in the men's parallel giant slalom snowboarding event at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, qualified fifteenth and Michael Lambert of Toronto qualified sixteenth.
