Short track speed skating Olympic gold medallist Charles Hamelin was in the red chair to talk about his win in Sochi.

Hamelin spoke with George about the pressure to win that Canadian athletes have faced since the 2010 Vancouver Games.

"People expect us to win," Hamelin said. "We had a lot of cheering like, 'You're gonna get it,' 'You're gonna get it again' and just that brings us pride inside and you just want to do it again.

"We were at the Olympics and I was going on Twitter and Facebook and all the love, all the cheering that I received from that medal [win], and not only that, but when I did falls in the 500 metres and 1000 metres, all those beautiful messages I received I was just overwhelmed by everything.

"I did cry."
