Cool. I think they must have some sort of excel sheet like I made, or something else, but I don't see a continuously updated table on their page. I'll post updates hopefully periodically but probably sporadically until the Olympics are done, or until I find a page online that does it better.

Canada's baseball team blanks the Netherlands 4-0 Tuesday

Canada's baseball team kept its slim medal hopes alive after blanking the Netherlands 4-0 Tuesday in Beijing.

The Canadians must now defeat Chinese Taipei in their final game on Wednesday, but still needs help from other countries in order to advance to the semifinal.

Vancouver's starter Brooks McNiven allowed only one hit and no walks during six outstanding innings of pitching. Rheal Cormier of Moncton, N.B., Ottawa's T.J. Burton and Toronto's Jonathan Lockwood each pitched one scoreless inning apiece in relief to finish off a two-hitter.

Calgary's Emerson Frostad went 2-for-4 at the plate with an RBI to jumpstart Canada's stagnant offence.

"We put together a more complete ball game today with outstanding pitching," manager Terry Puhl said. "We had a little more showing from our hitters and scored some runs early. You have to score some runs in international baseball and that is something that we struggled with."

Pitcher Shairon Martis was tagged with the loss for the Netherlands, surrendering three runs, four hits and three walks over six innings.

Obviously, the US, with the very recent BALCO scandal (can you spell Marion Jones?) still hasn't learned that lesson. Hell, I'd be surprised if the Chinese and Russians AREN'T doing it too.

God, sometimes I can't believe how stupidly partisan you are, then you go and prove it all over again. Enjoy your purple kool-aid!



I get your logic anyone who has more medals than Canada is cheating. :roll:

Canada's Lopes-Schliep wins hurdles bronze

Canadian Priscilla Lopes-Schliep won a bronze medal in the 100-metre hurdles final late Tuesday at the Beijing Olympics, a race won by Dawn Harper of the United States.

Harper was timed in 12.54 seconds, with Sally McLellan of Australia taking silver.

Lopes-Schliep, of Whitby, Ont., ran in 12.64 seconds, the same time as McLellan. The Canadian got off to a good start before slipping back over the middle part of the race, but was resurgent as several racers lunged towards the line.

"It was really close, when I saw 'photo finish.' I was on pins and needles, I didn't know what happened," Lopes-Schliep told CBC Sports. "All of us just went for that line. It was an intense race and I came through and got the third, so I'm very pleased."


Despatie wins silver in men's diving

Alexandre Despatie won Canada's third medal on Day 11, finishing second in the men's three-metre springboard diving competition at the Beijing Olympics.

Despatie, a 23-year-old native of Laval, Que., finished with a total score of 536.65 points from six dives to claim the silver medal Tuesday.


Burnett wins silver in men's trampoline


Canada's Jason Burnett has won silver in men's trampoline at the Beijing Games.

Burnett, 21, posted a score of 40.70 Tuesday for his routine, which featured a degree of difficulty of 16.8 — the highest in the final.

The three-time Canadian champion from Toronto told the CBC that playing it safe with an easier routine wasn't even a consideration.

"No, definitely not," Burnett said. "This is the Olympics. This is it. Why play it safe?

"You might as well put it all on the line and go for broke, and it paid off today with a silver medal."

Learn to read moron! The text describing BEN JOHNSON (the athlete who lost a GOLD medal) now bolded so that all JACKOFFS can read it. :roll:

More anti-Canaidan tripe from another retard who has nothing better to do than go to a forum located in another country and beat his chest like a big dumb gorilla. Go get a banana...

At least I can admit my own country's shortcomings kool-aid drinker...

I hear this excuse all the time and it is 100% unfiltered BS. Like I mentioned in another thread quite a few winter nations are doing decent.

Look at Russia, known as a "winter nation" yet it has 12 medals.

Sweden and Finland, another couple "winter nations" have won 2 each so far. Norway got one.

Canada used to be good at the summer olympics, in '84 we were the number six country with 44 medals. A respectable standing. Jump to '96 and we got only 22. Jump to '04 and Canada wins 12.

In '08 I predict we will do even more poorly than '04.


Canada now has 13 medals, one more than we got in 2004. We also have more than all three Scandanavian winter nations COMBINED (Sweden =2, Finland =3, Norway =5).

Rank by Gold medals = 17, rank by medal count = 12

Time to eat a little crow...

Judging questioned after Canada's Gonda loses first taekwondo match

Canada's Ivett Gonda lost her first taekwondo match 2-0 to Hanna Zajc of Sweden on Wednesday at the 2008 Olympic Games, but the judging is being questioned.

Competing in the under-49 kilogram class, Zajc took the lead in the first round when she scored a point against Gonda on a defensive kick. Her second point came when she scored on an offensive kick in the third round.

Gonda, 20, and her coach, Shin Wook Lim, are suggesting there was unfair judging in the match, saying the Canadian didn't receive the points she earned.

Lim suggested the Chinese judge Lei Zhao may have not been giving Gonda the points she deserved because she would have faced a Chinese athlete in the next round. Gonda is considered a medal contender in this weight class.

"I can't say for sure, but she made a point but [didn't receive] a point," Lim said. "Must be the machine's broken, I don't know. Other coaches were surprised. It's not only coming from me emotionally."

Lim and Gonda launched a protest, hoping for a re-match before the start of the afternoon matches on Wednesday. If the protest is successful, the judge could be punished if there was any wrongdoing.
