What? Curling is not only the 2nd best thing about the Winter olympics, but Sweden also beat Canada in the women's curling final.

However, Women's hockey shouldn't be in the Olympics that's a free gold for canada.

And I'm not sure exactly where canada got most of their golds, but I feel like all the different snowboard events have been very dominated by canada and the US.

there are constantly these new sports being added to the olympics, making it easier and easier to get a high medal count, especially for the big countries like US and Canada.

We didn't just win in the made-up sports. Men's and women's hockey, curling, long track speed skating, short track speed skating, figure skating, women's two-person boblsed, men's skeleton, as well as snowboarding and he freestyle skiing. A lot of different skills and sports involved.

Hopefully, the athletes don't get their funding cut by the Cdn government. On to Sochi.

butthurt

Try having a point next time you post. It makes it so much more interesting to the reader.

I wouldn't exactly call it butthurt to point out the hypocrisy of the OP.

Haha yeah bring up something that happened that long ago, keep feeling big with all those silver and bronze I personally love gold myself though.

Silver and bronze are pretty good. You treat them as if there is only 3 competitors in each event, and bronze is dead last. The gold, silver, and bronze winners in each event are separated by such small fractions who knows what would happen on any given day. Look at how many competitors are in each event. There is hardly a difference between bronze and gold in most events.

No i know bronze and silver are great but when it got brought up in another thread every american in there was tlaking about how huge their medal count is and how we're just the little brother still and blah blah blah.

We set a record for most golds at the olympics, pretty much the biggest thing you can win in sports and its being downplayed in other threads as if its not that great.

Fact of the matter is, we did win the most gold and its something for every Canadian to be proud of in here. It shows the strides our country is making in sports especially compared to the last few olympics and its great to see. The states have dominated most sports for a long time and it seems alot of posters dont wanna give credit to Canada in here where credit is due. I'm not saying everyone but theres plenty that don't.

I would be more impressed if they broke the shutout or fewest goals allowed record. Blowing up backwoods euro teams including the 2 worst in the tournament in just meh. Not to mention they also played the max number of games possible.

With Canada sealing the deal on the hockey game they set a record for most golds at a single Olympics.

What a fitting way to set the record, proving hockey belongs to Canada with Gold in both men's and women's.

A great day to be Canadian.

And before anyone brings up the USA medal count, yeah we get it you guys were the 1st loser and the second loser more then us but we have the most gold which is what really matters!

Well it finally happened. I finally met a Newfie I didn't like.

Wrong.

What you want to say is that Canada set the record for most golds at the Winter Olympics. Get your facts straight.

Chinese are more than a billion, they should not count :D

Canada did great.

Much better than in Calgary for instance. Nobody expected them so good. And they won the gold in hockey.

It's always hard to compare olympics cause new sports are added...

I guess 13 gold medails for Soviet Union in Innsbruck 1976 is still the most impressive performance ever.

How did you guys in Canada do last time you hosted the Olympics in the gold count? I recall you guys doing pretty well last time.

we were s***. 0 golds in 88, 0 golds in 76.

We've improved by 14 Gold medals since 88. How many have you improved by?

We've improved by 14 golds since the last time we've hosted how many have you improved by?

Canada Owned the Podium this year. Think silvers count? Go tell the Buffalo bills that Silver Matters.

What an embarrassingly poor comparison. The top 3 athletes in every event are awarded with a medal. Go up to a silver or bronze medalist and tell them that their achievement doesn't matter because they didn't win gold. Football and the Olympics are two completely different things and you cannot compare the two.

I dont get what youre arguing?

Youre one of the Americans on here that won't let Canadians enjoy our record and one of the reasons I made a thread like this. Don't get me wrong I pretty much always agree with what you say on this site and are a poster that I don't mind but I think we just have huge national pride.

I'm arguing that silver and bronze do matter. If gold is the only medal that matters, then why do they hand out silver and bronze? Enjoy your achievement, but don't s*** on the achievement of the US for winning the most medals. It is an achievement and not something to be looked down upon, which is exactly what you are doing. If you want recognition, it might do you wise to recognize a similarly great achievement.

O really? Then why did Canada spend $110 million on a " Own the Podium" program to try to win the all round medal count? O and by the way Canada publicly gave up on "Own the Podium" when it was clear they wouldn't top the Americans. Dont kid yourself all the medals are important not just the golds.
