Olys coming up soon. We'll see just how much this extra money has done. There's no doubt that it has purchased equipment, better accomodations meals, etc. Athletes will attest to that. What Canadians have difficulty doing is getting that last bit to the podium...the mental edge to get there. The HR available to athletes over a long time just hasn't been there; the mental skills take a long time to develop and implement, so that when they get to the "big game" the skills are ingrained, and aren't susceptible to external factors...like the crowd, the compeititve situation, etc.
