  1. Canada National Thread

    There’s also the women’s team pursuit skating for a medal tonight, a few more possibilities between the mass start and de Haitre in the 1000m in long track as well. Plus 2 Canadians in the men’s ski halfpipe, the men’s curling team and Jasey-Jay just won a World Cup event. So there are possibilities to end with a bang.

    I'm optimistic that those medals will come in other events. I have a good feeling about a few that may bump us up to over 26, even if we are limited to one in curling and hockey.
  3. Canada National Thread

    2 golds last night, here I was thinking there was no way we could hit the 10 gold from Sochi and now its looking like it'll happen. Only 7 more medals till we hit the 26 total!
  4. Heat 8 of the men's event is stacked!
  5. There's an article about her here: https://sports.yahoo.com/bad-american-skier-games-system-make-olympics-070235305.html

    Do we think Humphries is playing mind games with her training runs or she actually had an off day?
  7. Canada National Thread

    Weird that there is only 3 medal events today, but Canada has a decent shot in 2 of them. Lots can happen in the 500m speed skating though. A little bit disappointed that Rochon finished 5th, I definitely prefer the slopestyle best of 3 runs as opposed to the elimination all or nothing (for aerials, moguls works just fine). But a medal for ABM and the women's curling team finally pulling it together were highlights.
  8. Speed Skating at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    The Wikipedia article showed it as a bracket though...
  9. Canada National Thread

    I don't really get why there was any reason to doubt Horman pre-tournament if she had such a pedigree. But if they did they were clearly onto something. The look the coach gave Cheryl Bernard at the end of the game makes me think she's about to get subbed in. There's going to be intense pressure on right now.... I think its too late. I know Slopestyle skiing and short track are unpredictable but I have hope. I also wish Patrick Chan a good skate to probably end his career, we all know he's not in medal contention, but it will be great to see him go out on top.
  10. Canada National Thread

    This is very bad! I don't follow curling regularly but I'm absolutely shocked this is the team we sent, they seem to be completely inept. At what point do we sub in Cheryl Bernard, I don't even know how much better she'll be but still.
  11. Canada National Thread

    I mean a 7th and 8th place busy compared to Sochi. It’s a better type of busy eh?
  12. Canada National Thread

    Tomorrow there's also the women's 5000m in Speed Skating and the men's 15km Freestyle in Cross Country that Canada has at least an outside shot in.
  13. Canada National Thread

    I decided to not wake up this morning for the events but its a great thing to wake up to! Ted-Jan Bloeman won gold in the men's 10000m and Team Luge won silver!
  14. Canada National Thread

    I think the pairs medal may bit a bit much to wish for. I think our best medal hope tomorrow is Ted-Jan Bloeman in the 10,000m. But looking good in the Luge and I would not rule out the Men's Snowboardcross either.
  15. Now that I think about it I worked with some Korean people when Yuna won silver in 2014 and they were definitely in a meltdown mode when that happened.
