How about with speed skater, Charles Hamelin, with his win in the 1500m. I don’t know what’s cuter, his victory celebration or that of his girlfriend (who is also skating for Canada in Sochi) Marianne St-Gelais.
In men’s moguls, Alex Bilodeau made history when he became the first athlete to win back-to-back gold medals in the sport. Closely followed by fellow Canadian Mikael Kingsbury who picked up silver and Marc-Antoine Gagnon with a close 4th. There were some really precious moments with Alex celebrating with his brother.
I missed a day, but Canada got their silver medals today for getting 2nd in the team skate!
Curling was underway today. The men’s team beat Germany, but were upset by the Swiss later. And the women won their game against China.
And the day wouldn’t be complete without some hockey action. Canada claimed victory over Finland 3-0. It was a bit of a nail bitter though. Game was scoreless into the 3rd, but the girls managed to pull out a win. GG!
Most anticipated sport of the Olympics is set to get underway. US had a game against and just dominated it 9-0 with the help of Leafs, Kessel and VRD. But what we really care about is Team Canada. They had their first practice today getting ready for their game against on Wednesday.
Final tally after today… 7 medals! Way to go, Team Canada!
