Dr. Mike Evans is going to the Olympics.

No, he’s not a fourth line grinder on the Canadian men’s hockey team – although he’s bringing his skates “just in case.”

Dr. Evans, a staff physician with St. Michael's Hospital, is there to provide medical care to the 340 CBC employees working at the Games.

He'll also serve as on-air medical commentator when health topics arise and as a blogger for CBC.

“My blog will intersect sports and health,” said Dr. Evans. “It will include personal reflections but I’ll also try to use athlete experiences to explain sports injuries.”

St. Michael’s is trying to arrange a Twitter chat with Dr. Evans while he’s in Russia. The date and time has not been set but if you have any questions for Dr. Evans about his Olympic experience, tweet them to @StMikesHospital with the hashtag #AskDrMike.
