Awesome to see how well our Canadian athletes are doing so far. :rock:

Have been watching bits here and there (mostly on recaps of course) and the games have overall been quite good.

Watching the Canadian women kick butt right now vs Finland in hockey. 4-0 in the 2nd intermission at the moment.

4-1 final for our gals! :rock:

Had to chuckle at one of our penalties. "Too many men on the ice" as it was called. During the PP the announcer then said the penalty was for "too many players on the ice". How very PC of him. :lol:

Kim Boutin wins short track bronze

Quote:
Canadian speed skater Kim Boutin has won a bronze medal in women's short track speed skating.

Another Canadian skater, Marianne St-Gelais, was a podium hopeful in the same 500-metre event, but was disqualified in an earlier heat after being deemed to have interfered with another skater.

Gold went to Italy's Arianna Fontana and Dutch skater Yara Van Kerkhof took the silver.

Canada's Lawes, Morris win mixed doubles curling gold

Image

Quote:
Canada's Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris won the first-ever Winter Games gold medal in mixed doubles curling on Tuesday, defeating Switzerland 10-3 at the Gangneung Curling Centre in South Korea.

After the teams exchanged deuces in the first two ends, Lawes tapped for four in the third to snap a 2-2 tie to give Canada a commanding 6-2 lead.

It was Lawes and Morris' second win over the Swiss in five days after they made Jenny Perret and Martin Rios pay for their mistakes early on the way to a 7-2 win in the round robin.

Lawes and Morris finished the tournament with an 8-1 record, reeling off eight consecutive victories after dropping a 9-6 decision to Norway in their opening match. The Winnipeg natives are also a combined 29-1 in Olympic play.

The 29-year-old Lawes won gold at the 2014 Sochi Games in Russia as vice for Jennifer Jones while Morris, 39, was an Olympic champion at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics playing third for the now-retired Kevin Martin, who told CBC Sports' Devin Heroux on Monday that "you won't meet a better big-game player than John Morris."

Lawes and Morris came together only one month ago at the Canadian Olympic trials. They made mistakes in Pyeongchang and learned from them, proving to be quite resilient throughout the tourney and outscoring their opponents 64-24.

"It's been an incredible ride," Lawes said Monday. "To at one point feel like you're not going to the Olympics after losing out at the team trials [with Jones] to being here in this moment … to be here for the second time and to know that we're coming home with a medal for Canada is so special."

Lawes was forced to take a technical timeout before her final shot in the third end as there appeared to be a problem with the handle on her broom. "I wanted to make sure it was tight before I threw it," she told CBC Sports during a break in play.

A couple of key misses by Switzerland's Martin Rios set up the big score. First, he missed an available hit and roll, and then missed wide left on an open hit that would have cleared three Canadian rocks.

PYEONGCHANG, Korea, Republic Of -- Alex Gough captured Canada's first-ever medal in women's luge.

Anyone who watches this record setting run will see something that happens very rarely, three of the American women choked on the final run, one crashed completely and the other two managed to lose it somewhere in the run. This definitely helped with Canada winning their first ever medal in Women's Luge.
