In the wake of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Jian reconvenes the Q sports panel to reflect on highlights and historical moments from Russia's games.
Joining him today are Stephen Brunt
, columnist at Sportsnet Magazine, and Mary Ormsby
, sports editor for the Toronto Star.
After Team Canada left Sochi third in the medal standings, the panel discusses the real Canadian story of the Olympic Games, whether organizers are 'half-assing' women's sports, and why there seemed to be a dearth of athletes willing to speak out about social issues.
"I would've loved to have seen someone take that opportunity to make a point. But I can't compel someone to do that," says Brunt, recalling the Black Power salute of 1968
Although he stops short of saying Olympians have a responsibility to make a statement, he adds, "it would've been a brave thing to do."
