Day 10: Olympics

Yesterday was Day 10 of the Olympics, and the Canadian team did not disappoint. They won two more medals.

Canada won a Silver medal in Women’s Snowboard Cross… Yay! Dominique Maltais felt the joy of Olympic success eight years ago and the crushing blow of failure four years later in Vancouver when she crashed hard in training just minutes before her snowboard cross event started. She had injured herself, spitting up blood, she failed to make it out of the qualification round. But that changed yesterday when she became the first athlete to win two Olympic medals in women’s snowboard cross.

Canadian Jan Hudec tied for the Bronze medal in the Men’s Alpine Super G becoming the first Canadian to do so in 20 years. Hudec says he buried a loonie at the finish line to give him luck in the competition. 🙂
