I think I may be insufferable to non-Canadians for the next week or 2.  It is Sochi 2014, the Winter Olympics, and Canadians own winter.  There is every chance that our nation of 33 million will take on the world and come out on top of said world.  Day 3 is now complete and we are leading the way in medals and gold medals, positioned strongly to take even more tomorrow.  Today we set a personal best 3 day total ever and now have 3 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 bronze.  For the second time in moguls, we put the gold and silver medallist on the podium.  Congratulations to repeat gold medallist Alexandre Bilodeau and to silver winner Mikael Kingsbury.  Congratulations as well to Charles Hamelin who won the first of what Canada hopes will be 3 gold medals, this one in 1,500 metre short track speed-skating.

  1. 😀 So proud to be Canadian.

  2. I happily concede to your superiority in the Winter Olympics but wish to point out that if snowballing fighting or going down a hill on a plastic bag become winter events us Brits will surely take gold in them lol

  3. Good luck to all your athletes!

    the Olympics lost something for me when Eddie the Eagle stopped flying.
