Canadian Samuel Girard wins gold in men’s 1000m short track speed skating.

Currently, Canada has 5 of each kind of medal for 15 medals third in the rankings behind Norway and Germany.

Speaking of Norway, no doubt they are always a powerhouse in many winter sports and always perform well in various winter sports tournaments such as the Winter Olympics. But one winter sport they've never done well at all is ice hockey and unlike their Scandinavian brothers in Sweden and Finland, the Norwegian men's national ice hockey team historically would not qualify, let alone win a medal. I'll concede that I'm not an expert when it comes to Norway vs. Sweden vs. Finland in terms of culture but I believe they are relatively similar and all of them excel in winter sports, but Norway was never elite in ice hockey. Perhaps it has to do with funding in that sport and would rather fund other sports like skiing.


祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。
改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。
祝你老鼠年行大運。

What a performance by Virtue and Moir under tremendous pressure. The greatest dance skating couple ever.

There will be another medal for Canada tonight.

For men's ice hockey, Canada defeated Finland in a hard fought game. While Finland has won a fair amount of silver and bronze, they've never struck gold and won't do so either in this games. Team USA is out as well after a shootout loss to the Czech Republic, while Germany upset Sweden for a semifinal between Canada vs. Germany. Should Canada take for granted for Germany thinking that since it was never a powerhouse, it should be simple win and the Germany's luck will simply run out like Team Belarus and Team Switzerland when they made the odd upset?

Canada trailing the US 1-0 after the 1st period in the Women's Gold Medal game. Canada was assessed 3 undisciplined penalties. US team looked more skilled, stronger and faster. Canadian women can't seem to make 2 consecutive passes in a row.

Canada loses 3-2 on a shootout. Poor line change resulted in the Americans tying the game in the 3rd period.

Jocelyne Larocque immediately removed her silver medal.

But no, she didn't throw it in the stands. Maybe she should if she's so angry about that medal. At least it will make an audience member very happy. Or, maybe she should offer to trade for the bronze medal from a player from Team Finland. Now, it will make both sides happy as the Finnish player will get a nice upgrade, and Larocque would been happier winning the bronze medal like all bronze medalists.

The Americans were faster, stronger and more disciplined. Canadians shot themselves in the foot by taking 3 undisciplined penalties in the first period forcing them to play on their heels and not building any momentum.
