Canada Confident About WInter Games

SOCHI — Team Canada has taken the gold medal for confidence at the Sochi Games.

Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut said he has no regrets about saying his team plans to be on the podium every day of these Winter Games.

"Canada is here to compete and win," Aubut said. "This is an ambitious goal, but we Canadians like it this way."

The Canadians swaggered into Sochi buoyed by winning 14 gold medals on their home turf at the Vancouver Games in 2010. They finished first in gold medals and third in total medals in those games, and they expect to improve on that this time around.
