The first only figure skater to land five quadruple jumps in one competition is hoping to win Canada gold at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

Kevin Reynolds, 23, from North Vancouver, B.C., will be competing in the new Olympic team figure skating event before the opening ceremonies even begin. He will also skate in the men's figure skating competition, an opportunity he missed at the 2010 Games in Vancouver.

"It's been a long four years, but now the moment's finally come," says Reynolds.
