Canadian athletes are a fascinating breed of focused men and women who know what they want to achieve. We see them as they compete, and then they disappear from our view.

Here's a place where you have a chance to meet them in a way that illustrates their personalities. Their likes, their dislikes and what makes them tick. We call this the Olympic Relay and here's how it works.

A few months ago we had the idea of sending five questions to a selected group of Olympic athletes. We started with Olympic kayaker and medal hopeful Adam van Koeverden and asked for his feedback. He responded by saying it's a good idea, but it could be better? He suggested that we get athletes to ask questions of other athletes. Something like chain mail. And that is what we have tried to do.

For the past few months they have been asking questions of some of their fellow athletes who have generously taken the time to respond. Click on the images above and you'll discover the questions, and the answers. Enjoy!
