Well it took 8 days but Canada finally wins 3 medals. Congrats to the olympians!
Teacherguy saidwell she was born in vietnam...and not china...but she is a Canadian citizen..i don't think it diminishes the win...when our anthem was playing she was very emotional and she thanked her hometown in bc for supporting her. Sounds like a Canadian to me.
Malibu saidWhew, finally. Im not going to lie, the news press on the Canadian Olympics at first was funny because they were getting whipped so badly, but then it just got down right depressing. Whats that, two silvers and a bronze ? No gold, but its better than nothing.
26mileman saidI think Canada has the same calibre athletes as anywhere else. The problem lies in funding to train the athletes to their best potential. If medals are the objective,(which they are), then the Canadian government needs to step up to the plate and do more to help out.
Tyler Christopher, Canada's 400m gold hopeful was competing in a meet several weeks back. Our national news'top story instead was a watermelon tossing contest somewhere in Ontario.
I gave my head a shake and thought,"Huh?

I hear with Australia's small population,compared to the rest of the world, we are doing well too.
timsims saidWe have 13 million more people than Australia and they have 25 medals compared to our 3. hmmmm......
Caslon6000 saidDoes Canada usually do better at the Winter games?
...not that there is anything wrong with 3 medals .. */treading softly here/*
