Jian talks to snowboard cross athlete Dominique Maltais
about her dangerous and challenging sport, which combines stunts with simultaneous racing. Maltais won silver for the event in Sochi after recovering from a bad injury four years ago.
Maltais, the first two-time medallist in women's snowboard
cross, also talks about the mental and
physical fortitude it took to get herself back onto the podium after
crashing out and being eliminated from the quarterfinals at the 2010
"Vancouver was the hardest time in my life.
It took me probably a couple months, and even two years after Vancouver,
I was still thinking about Vancouver," she says.
Despite being an extreme sports athlete and Montreal firefighter, Maltais says
the thing she fears most is tragedy befalling her loved ones.
"I'm more scared about my family or my friends or my boyfriend than I am for me," she says.
"For me, I know I can do it. I'm a tough girl."
