Steve Podborski, Canada’s Chef De Mission at Sochi, joined George to talk about his days on the slopes, and the prospects for this year's Olympic team.

One of the topics that came up was the way the Canadian Olympic team set its goals for Sochi.

"People ask me, 'why is the Canadian team striving for number one in the medal count when it's pretty clear that that won't happen?' Because it's really better than striving for mediocrity. It's just really no fun to be kind of OK."
