We’re only 4 into the 2014 Sochi Olympics, and team Canada is kicking it! At time of press for this article, Canada is in second place in medal standings next only to Sweden! If all goes well, we’ll jump into first place no problem.
So where are we at with medals? We’re already at 9 medals – a strong start to the games. To compare, by the end of day 4 in the 2010 games, Canada had only won 4 medals.
Current Medal Wins, in no particular order:
Snowboarder Mark McMorris took the first medal in Men’s Slopestyle, winning a bronze for Team Canada. Sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe took another two in Women’s Moguls capturing a gold and silver respectively. Alex Bilodeau, a Team Canada Gold Winner in 2010, defended his gold title in Men’s Moguls. Another Canadian — Mikael Kingsbury — took silver. Charles Hamelin dominated in the Men’s 1500 m Speed Skating round as well, garnering a gold medal on Monday. Dara Howell took gold in Ladies Slopestyle on Monday as well, and Kim Lamarre took the bronze!
