Own The Podium was the theme for our Canada during this Olympics and, despite the hand wringing by the chattering classes and the elites and in our more prestigious media outlets, that goal has been achieved.
If the men's hockey team beats the States today, and they are favoured to do so by bookmakers world wide, Canada will have won the most gold in the history of history.
Worst case scenario would be to tie the Russians in '76 and the Norways in '02 with thirteen; win hockey and we are the champions re the gold with fourteen.
Canadian Press also reports that "Canada seems certain to end the Games with 26 medals. Lyndon Rush's sled won a bronze Saturday in four-man bobsleigh. That's a record, two more than the 24 won in Turin four years ago."
