Canada is guaranteed at least one more medal at the Sochi Games, but it's unlikely we'll beat or even match the medal count from the Vancouver Olympics.

Saturday was a disappointing day for Canadian athletes. 

Canada's mens speed skating team pursuit lost out on a bronze medal after being edged out by Poland. The team, which included Denny Morrison, won gold in 2010. 

Our four-man bobsled team completed two of four runs Saturday but a heartbreaking crash makes it highly unlikely that the team to reach the podium.

The crash happened near the end of the second run. The Canada 3 bobsled flipped as it took one of the curves. There were some tense moments as it continued down the ice upside down. All four members seemed okay as they emerged from the sled. 

Canucks have won 24 medals so far - two medals less than the 26 earned in a record-setting run in Vancouver in 2010. 

We're guaranteed our 25th piece of hardware - either silver or gold - Sunday, when the men's hockey team takes on Sweden.
