Going for gold

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 30/8/2013 (1397 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

The 47 hopefuls to crack the Canadian men's Olympic hockey squad gathered in Calgary this week to begin preparation for the country's gold-medal defence. Steve Yzerman, Team Canada executive director, says only 10 of the 25 positions are a lock so the odds of making the squad are better than in past Olympics. But what about the odds for the ultimate goal -- winning gold in Sochi?
