It could be a golden day in Russia for Canada.

We have shots at medals on the ice and the slopes on day 3 of competition.

Canada goes into the third day of competition at the Sochi Winter Games tied with host Russia for fourth place in the medal standings with four -- a gold, two silvers and a bronze. And there's legitimate potential for more hardware today with defending champion Alex Bilodeau and World Cup star Mikael Kingsbury competing in the moguls and Vancouver double-gold medallist Charles Hamelin taking part in the 15-hundred short-track speedskating race.

Bilodeau and Kingsbury have dominated the World Cup circuit this season. And, Bilodeau is the defending champion after winning gold four years ago in Vancouver. Sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe won gold and silver in the women's event on Saturday.

Canada's women's hockey team is back on the ice to play Finland. Canada is coming off a 5-0 win against Switzerland while Finland lost its opening match against the Americans 3-1. Rebecca Johnston leads Canada in scoring with a goal and two assists.

Canada's Brad Jacobs won his opening match at the Olympic curling competition, building a 9-5 lead after seven ends before holding off Germany's John Jahr 11-8. Germany scored one in the eighth and two in the ninth before Jacobs put it away two in the tenth ends. Canada's women's curlers are in action later with Jennifer Jones taking on China.

N-H-L players are on the ground in Sochi. Charter planes have begun landing, and more are scheduled to arrive over the next few hours. Team Canada has a practice set for today. After injury replacements and other late changes, 148 N-H-L players are on national-team rosters. Changes can be made up until three hours before the start of the first game on Wednesday.
