Olympics day 9 and we still do not own the podium

By Office Space Toronto In standard21st February, 2010

Long before the opening of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic games, millions of dollars were spent by the Canadian government and private companies to have Canadian medal wins top any others at these Olympic games on Canadian soil. Canada did not capture any medals on day 9, there are still several days left to compete and

So far the Canadian men’s speed skaters have not been able to reach the podium, but the Canadian women have.  Today Christine Nesbitt captured Gold in the women’s 1000m speed skating and Kristina Groves captured Bronze in the women’s 3000m.

Day 4 of the Olympics did not bring Canada any more gold, but Alexandre Bilodeau did receive his Gold medal tonight, but it was surprising that neither Alexandre Bilodeau nor the American Bryon Wilson removed their hats for the playing of O’Canada and the flag raising.  I wonder how many members of the media will

Tonight Canadian Olympic history was made when Mens Moguls skier Alexandre Bilodeau took Canada’s first ever Gold medal at a Canadian hosted Olympic Games.
