Zoe Gillings talks to Sky Sports News ahead of February's Winter Olympics and admits she plans to leave Russia with a medal around her neck.
Touted as one of Britain's brightest medal hopes, the snowboard cross athlete finished eighth at the Vancouver Games in 2010 and third at last year's World Cup.
And the 28-year-old says she is aiming for the podium in Sochi.
"I always dream of a medal. Any competition I go to I'm always going for a medal, the Olympics is no different," she said.
"Hopefully everything goes right on the day and I can come away with a medal around my neck."
Gillings, who attended her first Winter Olympics in Torino seven years ago, is feeling positive with four months to go until the Games kick off as she ups her training in preparation.
"There's a lot of technique involved in snowboard cross which is the event I do so you'd spend a lot of time actually on the snow.
"You can do lots of stuff in the gym, usually a lot through the summer and maintaining stuff through the winter but you've got to actually get out on the snow and on the features you'll be competing on to get really good."
And on the recent changes in line-up, Gillings added: "In Vancouver it was four people racing in each race whereas now it needs to be a bit more dangerous and a bit more unpredictable so they've chucked two more people in.
"There's a few more crashes, it's even more unpredictable on who will come out and win which makes it more exciting."
