List of 2014 Canadian Olympic interviews

According to the Sochi 2014 website, Team Canada will play Team Switzerland in women's hockey on Saturday. In December I spoke with Canadian players Marie-Philip Poulin of Quebec City, Quebec and Catherine Ward. They knew of the challenges they were going to face and the importance of taking every game at a time and not to take their opponents lightly.

There is no question that Canada and the United States are the class of the field in women's hockey at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, and Saturday will be our first chance to see if the rest of the field is closing the gap.

Along with Poulin and Ward, I have had the chance to interview other Canadian Olympic medal contenders for www.examiner.com. They include bobsledder Kaillie Humphries of Calgary, curler Jill Officer of Winnipeg, speed skater Christine Nesbitt of London, Ontario, mogulist Mikael Kingsbury of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec, hockey player and London, Ontario Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings, luger Justin Snith of Calgary, short track speed skater Charles Hamelin of Levis, Quebec, skeleton athlete Sarah Reid of Calgary and snowboard cross racer Dominique Maltais of Petite-Rivere-Saint-Francois Quebec.

I also spoke with Canadian Olympic gold medalist Kerrin Lee-Gartner of Trail, British Columbia to analyze the alpine skiing competiton and Own the Podium chief executive officer Anne Merklinger of Ottawa, who is considered the most powerfful woman in Canadian sports today.
