Canada currently is sitting in second place with 41 points, six points back of Russia for first, and ten points up on Italy for a medal.
The Canadians will compete in the men's long program (CBC, 8: 00 a.m.), the women's long program (CBC, 9:00 a.m.) and the ice dance long program competitions. Expect Canadian ice dance pair of Andrew Poje and Kaitlyn Weaver of Waterloo, Ontario will compete for Canada on Sunday as it would not be surprising if Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will rest for the ice dance competition.
Another strong medal chance will come in women's slopestyle snowboarding where world champion Spencer O'Brien of Courtenay, British Columbia will look for a podium spot (TSN, 2:00 a.m.). O'Brien has already qualified for the final. She will face a tough challenge from 2013 Winter X Games champion Jamie Anderson of the United States, Austria's Anna Gasser, who posted the top score in qualification and Australian Torah Bright, who is the reigning Olympic champion in the women's halfpipe.
There are also two outside medal chances for Canada in the men's alpine skiing downhill (CBC, 12:00 a.m.) and the men's 30km cross-country skiing skiathlon (TSN2, 3:00 a.m.). In the downhill, Erik Guay of Montreal enters the competition as the 2011 world champion in the discipline, while in cross-country skiing, Alex Harvey of Saint-Ferreol, Quebec finished third in a stage World Cup last month in Italy in a men's 35km cross-country skiing event.
In curling, Brad Jacobs's team of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario will begin his quest for Olympic gold as Canada faces John Jahr of Germany (CBC, 10:00 p.m.). Jacobs won the silver medal at the 2013 World Curling Championships in Victoria and will try to record a victory in his opening game where he is the heavy favourite.
Here are my pre-Olympic predictions for medal events that will be decided on Sunday. All times are mountain.
