Once the Olympic Games get started tomorrow in Sochi, Canadians won't be able to help but be glued to their screens to watch the action unfold in Russia.

And while we know plenty of stars will emerge from these games to become household names (remember how now "Amazing Race Canada" host Jon Montgomery got famous?), there are a few athletes we already have our eyes on to start the Games.

Google Canada has put together the top results for Olympic athletes already being searched by Canadians. Unsurprisingly in our hockey-obsessed country, there are plenty of hockey players on the list, perhaps a tribute to their NHL celebrity status (and of course, people looking for those who won't be playing at the Olympics as well). But interestingly, the top spot goes to a different sport entirely.

We have some ideas of our own as to who might be capturing the public's interest over the next two weeks — the Dufour-Lapointe sisters come to mind, as well as Kaya Turski, the defending world champion in the new sports of slopestyle.

Have any predictions about who will rise even further during the Olympics? Let us know below.
