Gahhh the Canadian Biathelete Le Guellec very very sad. He was a great shot, which allowed him to ping the 5 targets like ping ping ping ping (if you miss you ski a penalty lap)... Le Guellec was a head, but he lost trying to cross a sneaky corner.. :_C.... He wanted to be Canada's First male Biathelete for gold...

Canadian coach shows true Olympic spirit, and what it means to be Canadian.

Remember the Norwegian coach from the 2006 Olympics in Turin, Italy, that gave a ski pole to a Canadian female skier?  This is the same kind of thing.  Makes you proud to be a Canadian.

That was a heck of a win by TC Women for the Gold.

 

I still think Wickenhauer show have had a penalty shot after being hauled down.

 

They gutted out a win.

Way to go ladies!

We're in 3rd in the medal count.

Sure beats the years up to & including 2006 when "personal bests" were good enough. 17th instead of 18th doesn't cut it anymore.

We play in the top ranks of the world & have more pride.

 

We have a lot of medals but need a few more Gold to pass Norway & Russia. I'd love for my "Home & Native Land" to steal the thunder in Russia.

On a side note:

I kept reading and hearing that Canada was in the weakest Division of the Mens Hockey.

 

Seems the Second best team from the weakest Division has the ability to be the Giant Killers.

 

First Russia and now the US in the Bronze medal match:

I am certain Flower88 will be pleased to see this result.
