Michelle Kelly, Skeleton

ichelle Kelly's Olympic journey began with a dare. The Grand Prairie, Alta. native is one of the two women who will carry Canada's medal hopes in skeleton, a recently revived sliding sport that looks like a scarier sibling of luge, complete with running head-first start.

It's not easy being queen. But if anyone is up to the job, it's cross-country skiing star Beckie Scott, who is poised to lead the Canadian team to what it hopes will be its best Olympics ever in Salt Lake City. Scott, 27, is now in her eighth year on the national cross country ski team, and over the past couple of seasons, she's proven she belongs in the ranks of the world's elite cross-country skiers and sprint racers.
