    I'm just happy to see the men's side moving up recently.  It's been a long time since Despatie.

    Clearly the solution is to feature all Canadian athletes in the Sobeys commercials.

    Florence Brunelle just became a triple World Champion at the World Junior Championships (500, 1000 and 3000 m relay), Ann-Sophie Bachand also won silver in the 500 and looked really good. If they both continue, along with Kim Boutin and Courtney Sarault, we have a strong foursome for Milan 2026.

    The men on the other hand, NO MEDALS since 2016, and that was won by, you guessed it Steven Dubois.

    Ben Titley's contract was not renewed by Swimming Canada (sounds like a money reason) 
     
    Titley was the architect of Canada's team going through a reinesance. This is a huge loss.

    Listen, Canadian prime minister Erin O'Toole will announce the Canadian team will boycott and that will make everyone else realize that they need to boycott, too, because obviously a world cup without Canada just isn't credible and nobody will take it seriously.

    Canada had a lot of bad luck at these games. 26 medals is a good result (tied with 2010 for second highest ever, but down from 4 years ago's 29).
     
    4 gold medals is a disaster. Own the Podium's goal is to be the #1 nation in winter sport (sadly I think this means overall medals, not necessarily golds) by 2030 or 2034. In 2016, the OTP and the national federations realized not funding the future would eventually come to a games where Canada struggled, and these would be those games. Besides snowboarding, all NF's likely did not meet their goals for these games. The future does sort of look bright? But if Canada wants to own the podium, it will need to win medals in the nordic disciplines. A review is currently underway which could see all four Nordic Nf's merged under one banner, which tbh would be smart at this point. I hope this is just a blip in the radar for Canada and in 2026, we bounce back.

    Kripps pulls off a miracle and overcomes the superior German sleds to win a bronze.

    This is one of those bronze medals I’m very happy about - tbh even without the equipment advantage beating Lochner was just not going to happen.

    Crawford's medal feels like an afterthought because everyone believes the combined is a zombie. A medal in the downhill or super-g would have been a much bigger deal.
     
    If renovating Big Thunder, Canada Olympic Park and building training jumps in Whistler comes out of it then it will be worth every single disappointment from the past two weeks.

    So at this point we can safely say that will end with four gold medals. Some fun stats: this is the least golds won by since Lillehammer 1994, though there were only 67 events there compared to 109 here. This is only the sixth time finished outside the top ten at the Winter Olympics, first time since Calgary. Canada's medal table finish in Beijing matches the medal table finish from the past Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
