According to CBC Sports on Monday, the Associated Press is projecting 13 Olympic gold medals for Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and 32 medals overall.

If the Associated Press is accurate with their projections, then Canadian athletes will win one less gold medal than they won at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, but six more medals overall.

The gold medal predictions are in curling, hockey, figure skating, freestyle skiing, snowboarding, short track speed skating, and bobsled.

The Canadian men's hockey team, Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse (women's bobsled), and Jasey Jay Anderson (men's parallel giant slalom snowboarding) are projected to defend their gold medals in the same events from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

Charles Hamelin who won the men's 500m short track speed event four years ago, is favoured in the men's 1000m and 1500m events, and reigning ice dancing gold medalists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are expected to help Canada win gold in the all new team figure skating event.

While the Associated Press is projecting seven first time Canadian Olympic gold medalists--Patrick Chan in men's figure skating, Dara Howell in women's slopestyle skiing, Marielle Thompson in women's ski cross, Mike Riddle in men's halfpipe skiing, Mikael Kingsbury in men's moguls, Brad Jacobs in men's curling and Maxence Parrot in men's slopestyle snowboarding.
