Short-track speedskating star Charles Hamelin has become a Canadian fixture of the Winter Olympics, an almost sure bet to climb the medal podium. Beijing 2022 will be the 37-year-old's fifth and final Olympic appearance.

The skater has five Olympic medals, including three gold. Hamelin won the 1,500 meters - his 12th world title - at the world championships last spring, the Canadian team's first international competition in more than a year due to COVID-19.
