GOLD for Alexandre Bilodeau in Japan

And few more medals to come for Canada from Austria in few hours

Not in an Olympic event unfortunately, but Hail won that event the year before and than won the Olympic event.

Unfortunately something happened to our men's relay team so thats a lost medal.

But the 1000m and the Women's relay should push as ahead of the Americans in total medals.

Both Canada and South Korea got disqualified from the men's relay in the semis. That takes quite a bit of the excitement away, doesn't it?

The only things left are the World Single Distance Championships in Vancouver, the World Figure Skating Championships in Los Angeles, the World Curling Championships in Moncton and Gangneung, the World Ice Hockey Championships in Berne and Vaanta and Hameenlinna.

If Canada repeats performance in the single distance, curling and hockey championships it would be an additional 13 medals. Hopefully we also have as successful a figure skating championships too with 3 medals and that would give Canada 30 overall.

The Short Track championships were a disappointment, 5 medals for such a strong team, they need to double that next year.

Randomness of the day: Speed Skating is the sport in which the Netherlands has won the most Olympic medals, winter or summer (in fact, its not even close). But what makes the Netherlands interesting as a winter sport power is that they have only won three Winter Olympic medals (a gold and two silvers) in sports other that Speed Skating (well, a sport, Figure Skating). Actually, the only country you can compare the Netherlands to is South Korea (Short Track is the Olympic sport where South Korea won the most gold medals, and they only won two non-Short Track winter Olympic medals, both in Speed Skating). Back to the Netherlands, tough. There days of being held exclusively to Speed Skating WOG success might (MIGHT) be over. Indeed, they have strong medal hopes in the women's Snowboard Parallel Giant Slalom, and they have an outside medal shot in two-men Bobsled. The Netherlands winning a medal in a snow or sliding sport would certainly be something to celebrate. Oh, and while we are on the topic, Korea could also win a medal in a third winter sport (Figure Skating), courtesy of Kim Yu-Na. Although it would be a breakthrough, I have to wonder when South Korea will ever win a WOG medal in a non-skating discipline...

In any case, I wrote this to point out just how similar South Korea and the Netherlands are in term of there Winter Sports tradition.

Its indeed 78, not 76. It was bound to happen, tough. At one point I was more that ten events short in my count (I forgot to count some events) :unsure:

I still think that the actual board is acurate (I was much more methodical whit the board that I was whit the number of events).

Anyway, the next event is the ISU World Figure Skating Championships from L.A. which starts Friday.

The Americans will probably finish with 26 medals (2 from figure skating, 0 from curling and 1 from hockey), Norway is probably done in the medal winning, Germany has 1 and I don't really know about Canada. If LA goes perfectly I would say 8 possible medals, one in each event but 5 or 6 with 2 or 3 golds. Hopefully.

Our men's pursuit team has really gone downhill since 2006 eh?

Ya, our men's Pursuit team was a quite disappointing (fifth, I believe). The big surprise for me was Sweden, tough. Anyway, Norway's only hope of holding on to the lead is basically that the US gets shut-out of the gold and silver medals in Figure Skating, Curling and men's Hockey, and that the US women's Hockey team doesn't win gold.

Technically Canada could realistically win the medal table, Patrick Chan winning the men's, 2 curling gold and 2 hockey gold.

I don't see the Americans winning a lot at the figure skating unless a new female comes up but the Koreans and Japanese are just so dominate. Maybe a men's medal and one in ice dance with Belbin/Agosto.

Japan has so many strong women's skater that some even end up in Russia :lol:

Anyway, brutal performance by Canadian Dube and Davison, who finish seventh. And on a side note, 16 out of the 20 quotas for Vancouver where up for grasp: here are the countries that qualified couples for the Pairs event:

3 couples:

China

Russia

2 couples:

Canada

Germany

Unites States

At least the poor performance comes at the worlds and not at the Olympics next year.

The poor performance does have Olympic implications, tough: we will only be able to send two pairs at the Olympics.

Dube and Davidson are the only one of the pairs that have legitimate shot at a medal so as long as they qualify its a none issue. If they had repeated their score from last year they would have won silver. Its unfortunate but its not the end of the world as long as our top athletes go.

Figure Skating

I'm getting annoyed. After being two positions away from sending three pairs to Vancouver, we are one position away from sending three men single skater to Vancouver (and after two of three dances we are one position away from sending three dance teams to Vancouver). And I was hopping Canada would send a full 18-person team... Anyway, on whit business.

Men's Single:

G: Evan Lysacek (USA)

S: Patrick Chan (CAN)

B: Brian Joubert (FRA)

Good performance from Chan, altough I am hopping for gold in Vancouver. Joubert drops from first after the short to third.

Qualification implication:

3 athletes:

Japan

United States of America

2 athletes:

Canada

Czech Republic

France

Italy

Kazakhstan

Russia

1 athlete:

Belgium

Sweden

Spain

Slovenia

Ukraine

Poland

The United States has pretty much won the medal table now.

By the way, Yu-Na Kim of South Korea has nearly a 10 point lead after the Ladies short program. Honestly, unless she decapitates herself whit her skate blade I don't see how she could loose her tittle :lol: (thats a joke, obviously, but she would indeed have to screw up big time...).
