A Golden Baker's Dozen

Well, it was an awesome day for Canada today with the men stepping up their game in a BIG way.

It started with the Men's Team Pursuit in long track speed skating taking gold, followed 5 minutes later by Jasey Jay Anderson in the parallel giant slalom. Our Canada 1 4-men bobsleigh team was denied a silver by one-one-hundredth of a second and missed the top spot by 0.39 seoncds. And then our curlers' kill it with a decisive 6-3 victory win over Norway to make it 3 gold medals.

That's a record for gold medals won by a host country and with the guaranteed medal for Men's Hockey tomorrow, colour TBD, our final medal count is 26, surpassing our all-time best of 24 from Turin 4 years ago.

That's pretty fantastic!
