Tough luck with her landing on the other skiers skis.

These last 24 hours for Canada at the Olympics is something you'd expect to see in a horror film

She got impatient in a 3 person race

Very unlike Marielle. Wonder if she is rattled from what happened to Del.

The POV angle is cool. Has anybody tried the VR?

It hasn't been perfect but I don't think it's really been that bad.

20 years ago it would seem just as disastrous and with no medals to show for it.

Now it's disappointing just not winning gold, which is what they were hoping would change leading up to Vancouver, so it's working in that sense.


Thompson falling is unlucky, but it was also unexpected she would even be ready.


Now Sherett goes down hard. This one looks bad.

Posted from last night/this morning.

Slightly disappointing day for Canada.

Positives:

- Kim Boutin wins Silver (her 3rd medal of the Olympics)

Negatives:

- Women lose in the Gold Medal match (Silver)
- Men let go of Gold in the final 2 laps of the Short Track 5000M Team Relay (Bronze)
- Sam Girard finishes 4th in the Men's Short Track 500M
- Laurie Blouin has a disappointing Women's Big Air Final (hope her injury isn't serious)
- Noah Bowman and Mike Riddle finish 5th and 6th respectively in the Men's Freestyle Skiing Halfpipe (although our biggest Medal hopeful Simon d'Artois just missed out on Qualifying for the Finals)

Edit: We apparently can't even beat the US in Curling now. HORRIBLE day for Canada

Edit #2: Now Marielle Thompson AND India Sherret both fall in the 1/8 Finals. Hope Sherret is okay

This sport is so unpredictable. Not like Phelps or Bolt who just show up and win automatically.
