Canadian 2014 Olympic Score: Day 8


I missed a couple of days of score keeping because the Olympics wouldn’t be considerate of my flu and kept going while I couldn’t – sheesh! Luckily, Canada decided to ease off on the medal winning so it wouldn’t look like I was shirking my responsibility.

Nothing happened on Day 6 and then Patrick Chan won another Silver in Men’s Free Skate, bringing his personal total to a pair of Silver Medals destined to be some bad-ass cuff-links.

An honourable mention goes out to the Men’s Hockey Team who delivered one heluva third period against the U.S. I tuned into the game a few minutes into the third with the Americans up 1-0 and then BAM! Canada showed them the rockets red glare!

Day 8:

Today on the other hand, not only did my flu subside, but Denny Morrison won a Bronze Medal in Men’s 1500m Speed Skating. Like Patrick Chan, Denny could make some cuff-links as well but I think he’d be better or winning another so he’ll have a matching pair.

Another great day for Canada and our awesome athletes. Twice, I repeat TWICE today we were NUMBER ONE people and we’ll be going into Day 4 with that proud position.

Charles Hamelin raced across 1500 metres of ice to win the Gold.

And, we picked up the Gold and the Silver medals in Men’s Freestyle Moguls, Alexandre Bilodeau won the Gold and Mikaël Kingsbury earned himself a shiny Silver medal.
