Okay explain to me how that's a penalty. Not saying it's not but I don't see tripping or a stick between the legs. Two bodies bumping into each other and they fell down.

I had a nice conciliatory post in mind, that is until I seen #3 Jocelyne Larocque remove her medal the second after it was put around her neck. She acted like her silver medal was a piece of garbage that needed to be thrown in the trash. Such a classless display should not go unpunished. She should be stripped of her medal and barred from any future play in any Olympics. I did not see any players from Finland disrespecting their bronze medals like that. The whole world came together to play, and she is acting like her silver medal is worthless garbage. A totally classless act. No excuse whatsoever for this boorish behavior. No one likes a sore loser. I hope the Olympics makes an example out of her and her poor sportsmanship.

You win to get Bronze.

Getting silver means... you lost.

I agree it's still not very sportsman like.



Still, can't beat this.

Silver medal for Team Canada in women’s hockey

Image

Quote:
Canada’s women’s ice hockey team is leaving PyeongChang 2018 with a silver medal, following a 3-2 shootout loss in the final to the United States.

The loss snaps the Canadian women’s Olympic win streak at 24 games. They had won four straight Olympic gold medals following the last loss, which came also against the United States in the gold medal game at Nagano 1998.

The shootout lasted six rounds, ending when American netminder Maddie Rooney shut the door on Meghan Agosta, who had been looking to win her fourth Olympic gold medal. The U.S. scored three goals in the shootout to Canada’s two.

The Canadians and Americans were meeting in the gold medal game for a third straight Olympic Games. Since women’s ice hockey made its debut at Nagano 1998, the two have met in the tournament final in all but one Olympics. The neighbouring countries have developed a strong rivalry on the ice – and that was on display once again on Wednesday.

The Americans were awarded three consecutive power plays in the first period. With Sarah Nurse in the box for a slash, Sidney Moran fired a shot that was deflected by Hilary Knight in front and past Szabados, giving the United States a 1-0 lead after one.

Canada tied the game two minutes into the second period. Blayre Turnbull fired a saucer pass in front, avoiding a US defender that had tried to block the feed. Haley Irwin redirected the pass through the pads of American netminder Maddie Rooney, getting Canada on the board.

Marie-Philip Poulin gave Canada a 2-1 lead at 6:55. Meghan Agosta fed the Canadian captain near the slot who then beat a screened Rooney, giving the Canadians their first lead of the game. Poulin now has goals in three consecutive gold medal games.

The United States was pressuring early in the third period. Knight sent a cross crease pass to Brianna Decker, but the puck was poked away by Szabados while Poulin made contact with the American forward in front. But the Americans tied the game at 13:39. Monique Lamoureux broke in and beat Szabados with a wrist shot, making it a 2-2 game, which sent it into overtime. The Americans had many chances late in the overtime period, but Szabados made several key saves to keep it tied.

The Canadians went 3-0-0 during preliminary round play – which included a 2-1 win over the Americans. The team then earned a spot in the gold medal game with a 5-0 win over the Olympic Athletes from Russia on Monday.

Kaetlyn Osmond wins bronze in women’s singles figure skating

Image

Quote:
Kaetlyn Osmond is a now a three-time Olympic medallist, winning bronze in the women’s singles event for her first individual podium at the Winter Games.

Osmond took to the ice after Olympic Athlete from Russia Alina Zagitova, the short program leader, had gotten a standing ovation for her program that featured all seven of her triple jumps in the second half, giving her a 10 percent bonus on each one. She rocketed into first place with an overall score of 239.57 points.

But Osmond didn’t let that rattle her, as she reeled off seven triple jumps of her own, beginning with an excellent triple flip-triple toe combination. Even the triple loop, which had been a bit of a nemesis during the fall, was no problem as she landed it with confidence. Osmond blew away her previous personal best score in the free skate, earning 152.15 points from the judges for an overall total of 231.02, almost 13 points better than what won her the silver medal at last year’s world championships.

Reigning world champion Evgenia Medvedeva, also an Olympic Athlete From Russia, was last to skate and fell in just behind her countrywoman with 238.26 points.

Osmond started PyeongChang 2018 with a gold medal in the figure skating team event, which added to the silver she earned as a member of the team at Sochi 2014.

She is now the sixth Canadian woman to stand alone on an Olympic figure skating podium, 70 years after the first, Barbara Ann Scott, won gold at St. Moritz 1948.

Osmond’s medal comes just eight years after Joannie Rochette won an emotional bronze at Vancouver 2010. That had ended a much longer 22-year drought for Canada, which had endured since Elizabeth Manley won silver at Calgary 1988. Before that, Karen Magnussen earned silver at Sapporo 1972 and Petra Burka came home with bronze from Innsbruck 1964.

Serwa and Phelan finish 1-2 in women’s ski cross at PyeongChang 2018

Quote:
Kelsey Serwa and Brittany Phelan finish 1-2, to give Team Canada its second straight double podium in women’s ski cross at the Olympic Winter Games.

The medal keeps Canada’s Olympic podium streak alive in women’s ski cross. Ashleigh McIvor won gold in the event’s debut at Vancouver 2010, which was followed by Marielle Thompson and Kelsey Serwa finishing 1-2 at Sochi 2014.

Just two days earlier, Brady Leman became Canada’s first Olympic medallist in men’s ski cross when he won the gold medal at Phoenix Snow Park.

Kim Boutin completes hat trick taking silver in the 1,000-metre short track final

Image

Quote:
Canadian short-track speed skater Kim Boutin won a silver medal in the women's 1,000 metre on Thursday in Pyeongchang, South Korea

Boutin was near the front of the pack in the five-person, 1,000-metre race right from the start. Her position solidified in the last lap, when two South Korean skaters took each other out behind her.

That left her in a group of three remaining skaters who would all win a medal as long as they could make it to the end.

She jostled for position with the leader, but eventually crossed the line in second place, right behind Dutch gold medallist Suzanne Schulting and ahead of Italy's Arianna Fontana.

Boutin has now won bronze in the 500 and the 1,500, and a silver in the 1,000.
