Chef de Mission Mike Hay believes the squad for Sochi is one of the strongest after Great Britain confirmed they will send a total of 56 athletes to the Winter Olympics in Sochi next month.
The team has been set a target of at least three medals and Hay believes this could be the first time they achieve this since the 1936 Games in Garmisch.
Four reigning world champions have been included in the team of curler Eve Muirhead, freestyle skier James Woods, short track speed skater Elise Christie and skeleton star Shelley Rudman.
The number of athletes going to Sochi beats the number sent to Vancouver in 2010 by three but Hay still thinks that Great Britain don't have the depth of other nations.
"We understand expectations and we take it as a vote of confidence that this could be the most successful delegation since 1936," Hay said.
"To think we could challenge for three medals shows how far we've come since Vancouver, because we could not have delivered that four years ago. It's a challenge but it's certainly possible.
"I don't want to put undue pressure on the athletes. We don't have the depth of other nations and we are fragile at the top and we need to stay focused.
"You don't want to make excuses but there is an unpredictability with winter sports, they are high risk and I'm on the cautious side."
And Olympic hope also comes in the form of Rudman's skeleton team-mate Lizzy Yarnold who has won four out of seven World Cup races this season and many have outlined her to become the fourth consecutive Briton to win a medal in women's skeleton.
But for Yarnold just being selected in the Olympic team for Sochi is a dream come true and she is determined to give it everything she's got.
"This really is a dream come true - my whole life I have dreamt about becoming a British Olympian and for the last five years since I took up skeleton, competing at Sochi 2014 has been my primary focus," Yarnold said.
"This season has been great for my preparation, I am in a good place both physically and mentally, and I can't wait to get back on the Sochi track, go over the lines and maintain my focus.
"I don't take part in races to come second, so I will approach the Olympic Winter Games as I do every race and give it everything I've got."
