Canada's First Medal

Good to get the first one out of the way. Now we just need to a Gold so we don't have to listen for too long about how Canadians have never won a Gold Medal on Canadian soil.

It was nice but so razor edge close to a gold. She did very well and I am proud of her. That sport is really difficult.

Hopefully we can secure the gold tomorrow and get this thing rolling. More importantly, hopefully our Men's Hockey team can get a gold and really make these two weeks the most memorable from a sporting perspective. I discussed this with someone. Regardless of how many medals we win, if we can't win a gold in Men's hockey, our performance will be tarnished. Maybe that's just my unique opinion but it is our national religion.

I am a firm believer in what you just said. I think that if we only won one medal in Vancouver, but it was the Men's Hockey Gold the games would be considered a success by most people. If we won 50 medals but not the Hockey Gold they would be considered a tarnished games if not a failure. (not to down play other sports, but that is the reality as I see it)

GO TEAM CANADA GO!!!!!!!!!!

If yesterday is any indication of how our Olympics are going to go for team Canada I can see a lot medals but overall a disappointing performance as we do not get what we came for. Silver against Russia in hockey will be disappointing but nothing to be ashamed of.

Thank god the Olympics are in Vancouver because if it was hosted in Quebec a silver medal finish against an American team will have our hockey team booed off the ice & old glory's national anthem booed with rioting in the streets to follow.

The thing about hockey is that the most talented team does not always win and many factors play into this. We are going to need some luck on our side as well since the Russians are just as good or better (in terms of talent) than us. Thank God its on home turf--or maybe not as our boys will feel pressured.

On another note, we won a bronze in the 3000m speed skating race today. The nice thing is that the Canadians who did compete in this are much better in other (1500m, etc.), so hopefully we are just scatching the surface with these medals.

I bet that the Canadian boys will feel alot of pressure, but hopefully that can motivate them to perform to there best. Only time will tell.

I really hope Jeremy Wotherspoon can redeem himself and win something today in the 500m speed skating race. That guy had so much hope and hype for the 2002 and fell. Then, in Torin, he came up short again. The man is about to retire (I think he hinted at it) and I hope he can legitimize his already amazing career.

Steve Buffrey of Sun Media is reporting that the Australian Olympic team is thinking of contesting the results of the Men's Moguls Final.

I thought that the Australian skier looked like a sore loser on the podium, but I never imagined this.

^^The Australians are just cry babies. Begg-Smith is a sore loser and is the worst example of an Olympian and Canadian-born person (although he isn't Canadian anymore, apparently).

I donít think we have to worry about him losing his gold.

That's true and the thing is that even when Sale and Pelletier were awarded the gold due to a scandal in judging, the Russians kept their gold. Another thing is that it is near impossible for the cry baby to be awarded a gold medal unless there was a scandal unveiled in judging--which I doubt is the case after 2002.

Contest our gold & we will contest your silver, I saw his performance & could not believed he ended up 2nd with that mediocre performance. So in my opinion Canada should have finished 1st & 3rd. :!:
