Bronze!



Quite the story for Canada's Kim Boutin in winning Beonze in the Women's 1500 metres Short track Speedskating evenr.
Amid "death threats", a determined Boutin kept prevailing, as she skated to her second Bronze of the Games.

Boutin had earlier won Bronze  in the 500 metres after a South Korean competitor was disqualified due to interference and enabling Boutin to nab third.

Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock dialled in and gave the Homan-led Olympic Curling team -- Canada's Women's entry-- a  much-needed pep talk to bost confidence & morale.  At that point, the Women who were winless in three starts, routed the American entry 11-3.

It sure won't hurt to inherit some Babcock Olympic luck, he havimg coached the Men's Hockey squad to successive Golds (Vancouver 2010 & Sochi 2014).

Shortly after Canada's decisive 11-3 victory over the United States on Saturday its first win of the tournament the team received an unexpected phone call.

Just hours after his own team's 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock dialled Homan's team.

"We were just finishing up our team debrief meeting around midnight, and then Cheryl [Bernard, the team's alternate] came into the room with a phone call for Rachel, and it was Mike Babcock," team second Joanne Courtney wrote in a blog for Curling Canada.

It was a brief conversation, but he wanted to let the team know he had seen parts of their win against the Americans and to stay focused.

"We have so much respect for him as a coach, and he's such a great guy, and for him to be watching and thinking of us, it was really neat to hear his words and hear that he's pulling for us," Courtney wrote.

"He just reminded us to keep our heads down, working as hard as we can to get the results we want. It really helped motivate us for our game today against Switzerland."

Gold!



Canada's two-man bobsled team of Justin Kripps & Alexander Kopacz win Gold in the Two-mam Bobsled event.  The Canadians shared the Gold medal podium with the German team, as both Canada and Germany sported identical results.

What a coincidence but for good measure!

Gold!



What a sensational and thrilling, not to mention perfect, were Canada's Ice Dancing duo of Scott Moir & Tessa Virtue.   They earned themselves their all-time fifth medal -- a Gold -- unprecedented in the world of Ice Dancing.

Whoa, what a finish these two had.  It was fittingly that they were the last competitors of the evening and they made the most of it, knocking  off the other perfect duo, France's Papadakis/Cizeron who racked up enough points to win the Gold.  Enter Moir/Virtue....

....and the rest is history in the making, as their grace & style, professionalism & expertise on that ice were simply unbeatable.   Virtue & Moir had earlier broken their own World record in the Short Program portion of this competition, and judging by their very dynamic performance, it was plain to see why they were the favourites to win the Gold.

This may very well be Moir & Virtue's swan song, leaving them as the best ice dancers of their generation.

Congratulations, Scott & Tessa!     GO CANADA GO!
