True enough, water under the bridge and all that. The only thing I want to see is some accountability, from either FIFA or Christina Pedersen. I'm sure she has seen the tape of the game by now and has to be aware of both her errors and mistakes, if she had anything like a conscience, either an apology or at least an accounting of her actions would be appropriate.


Not going to happen.

As a FIFAss Official she's second only to the Pope when it comes to infalibilty. :roll: Besides Daddy said don't pick on her. :cry:

Canada wins Olympic women's soccer bronze

Quote:
Canada's women's soccer team has captured a bronze medal at the London Olympics.

Diana Matheson scored in the 92nd minute to beat France 1-0 in the third-place game.

The result gives Canada its first Summer Games medal in a traditional team sport since 1936.

Matheson's goal came after France dominated the second half and nearly went ahead in the 61st minute when striker Gaetane Thiney's shot hit a post.

Canada had an excellent chance in the 15th minute but captain Christine Sinclair launched a pass from Rhian Wilkinson over the net.

France entered the game having outscored Canada 6-0 in their previous two meetings, including a 4-0 win at the Women's World Cup.

Canada's Tonya Verbeek clinches another wrestling medal

Quote:
Canadian wrestler Tonya Verbeek has clinched a medal for the third consecutive Olympics.

The Grimsby, Ont., native advanced to the gold-medal match in the women’s 55-kilogram division on Thursday with a semifinal victory over Colombia's Jackeline Renteria in London.

Even if Verbeek loses the final match, she’ll come away with a silver medal.

Verbeek defeated India’s Geeta Geeta in the opening round before knocking off world championship bronze medallist Tetyana Lazareva of Ukraine in the quarter-finals. She then beat fellow 2008 Olympic bronze medallist Renteria in the semis.

Verbeek took the silver medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. She was also the silver medallist at last year's world championships.

Verbeek is the second Canadian wrestler to reach the podium in London. Carol Huynh won a bronze medal in the women’s 48-kg class on Wednesday.

Canada's Tonya Verbeek gets wrestling silver

Quote:
Canadian wrestler Tonya Verbeek lost her gold-medal match Thursday but still stood on the podium for the third consecutive Olympics.

The Grimsby, Ont., native fell to Japanese 55-kilogram great Saori Yoshida in a rematch of the 2004 Olympic title bout in Athens.

Thursday’s victory gave Yoshida her third consecutive Olympic gold medal. She has also won the last seven world titles, and nine in the last 10 years.

Verbeek, who turns 35 on Tuesday, has said she plans to retire after the world championships in Edmonton in September. She’ll walk away with a pair of Olympic silver medals along with a 2008 bronze. Verbeek also won three world championship medals, including a silver last year.

She is the second Canadian wrestler to reach the podium in London. Carol Huynh won a bronze medal in the women’s 48-kg class on Wednesday.

Verbeek's silver was the second medal of Day 13 for Canada. The women's soccer team defeated France for a bronze earlier.

Canada wins historic Olympic soccer bronze


Quote:
Diana Matheson scored in added time Thursday to give the Canadian women's soccer team a dramatic 1-0 victory in the Olympic bronze medal match against France.

In the second minute of added time in Coventry, Matheson passed inside the penalty area to midfielder Sophie Schmidt, who turned, dribbled and took a shot. The ball deflected off defender Sonia Bompastor and landed at the feet of Matheson, who volleyed in the game-winner past goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi.

"It feels amazing," Matheson said. "We felt as a group that we were going to earn this and we did, in the last minute."

The bronze is Canada's first Summer Games medal in a traditional team sport since the 1936 Berlin Games, when the men's basketball team won silver.

After a timid first half, France overran Canada in the second, hitting the post and crossbar, among numerous other chances. But they couldn't break through against the Canadians, who appeared to have heavy legs after losing 4-3 in extra time to the United States in the semifinals Monday.

Canadian captain Christine Sinclair's hat trick against the Americans was among her six goals in the tournament, but she did little to threaten France's goal and was forced to defend late in the game.

Canada was denied a spot in the gold medal game when the United States pulled through with a controversial victory in the semis. A late penalty kick from Abby Wambach sent the Americans to extra time where a header by teammate Alex Morgan was the difference in the 123rd minute.

The Wambach penalty resulted after the Americans were awarded a free kick outside the Canadian box by Norwegian referee Christiana Pedersen. Canadian goalkeeper Erin McLeod was whistled for holding the ball for more than six seconds. Marie-Eve Nault was charged with a handball in the penalty area on the ensuing kick.

Members of the Canadian women's team, including coach John Herdman were livid with Pedersen on Monday.

"She'll have to sleep in bed tonight after watching the replays, she's got that to live with," Herdman said. "We'll move on from this, I wonder if she'll be able to."

Herdman avoided punishment from FIFA after the international governing body said it would wait until after the Olympics to decide on potential discipline against Team Canada for their remarks.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper congratulated the team on their historic win.

He called the women a "great team" and "true Olympians" and noted they overcame adversity to earn their spot on the podium.

Harper said the efforts of Sinclair and the rest of the team "can only be described as heroic."

Canada will now travel about 100 miles southeast to Wembley Stadium to pick up the bronze after the gold-medal match between Japan and the U.S.

The bronze medal victory is a boost for Canada as it prepares to host the Women's World Cup in 2015.

Congratulations to the ladies, winning the first medal in a traditional team event since the 1936 Berlin Olympics!

Yeah, losing is always a bitch, especially when a it's a medal game! At least there was no controversy regarding this game, everyone on the field did their job to the very best of their ability.

Canada's Warner impresses with 5th place in decathlon

Image

Quote:
London, Ont.’s Damian Warner had an impressive showing in his first Olympic Games.

The 22-year-old Canadian finished fifth in the decathlon on Thursday, ending with a combined score of 8,442.

In all, Warner set six personal bests efforts during the last two days, including the final 1,500-metre race to conclude the competition.

American Ashton Eaton won the decathlon gold medal by 198 points.

Eaton set the decathlon world record at the U.S. trials in June and backed it up with an Olympic victory with 8,869 points. Two-time world champion Trey Hardee settled for silver with 8,671 points and Leonel Suarez of Cuba took the bronze, 346 points behind Eaton, at 8,523.

The American had a 151-point lead going into the final event, the 1,500, and is a better middle-distance runner than Hardee. But there were still some nerves in the field, with a rare false start in the 1,500.

Eaton needed to slash six seconds off his fastest ever time in the 1,500 to break his world record, but ran a cautious race and finished well outside his personal best in 4 minutes, 33.59 seconds.

There has been speculation that 16-year-old Chinese swimming sensation Ye Shiwen used performance-enhancing drugs to achieve her Olympic gold medal. However, a semen sample she provided after the race has shown that this is untrue. 8O
