A year before heading over to Sochi for the 2014 Olympics, Canadian women's hockey captain Hayley Wickenheiser spoke to Jian about the expectations and preparations going in to the games, as well as what might come after.

Graduating from the University of Calgary and contemplating furthering her education with medical school, Wickenheiser has been busy off the ice.

And while she isn't sure if Sochi will be her last Olympics, she admits: "I'm not quite ready to hang up my skates."

From the Best of Q, we revisit Jian's interview with the triple gold (and single silver) medalist, who says she's in the best shape of her life.
