Alex Bilodeau won the Gold in mens moguls! That's the first time a Canadian won an Olympic Gold in Canada!

Wow, that's surprising. You'd think they'd win at least one at some point.

Canada losing at anything hockey-related would be embarrassing. It's the sport they're best known for.

yea..that's true. Canada is the best at most hockey related events.

Womens Hockey Blowouts = Bad for Sport Link

Also, I'll update the medals totals and schedule later today when I'm on my desktop.

Holding back in sport makes for crappy viewing. No one wants to watch Canada and America play with the puck for an hour instead of actually playing the game.

Anyway, the only way things are going to change is if the other countries get better players. Canada and America can hold back all they want but in the end they will win. Even if they only win by 2 or 3 goals, they'll shutout the other team and embarrass them just as much. If the IOC wants real hockey then they need real teams. That is the ONLY real solution.

It's not a lack of talent. Canada and the US blowout their opponents largely because of conditioning and coaching--they skate faster for longer than their opponents and their coaches have a more complete understanding the game--both of which are money issues.

Look at the Soviet team versus amateur national teams during the Cold War era. Even the Soviets versus the NHL all-stars. The Soviets won due mostly to conditioning and coaching.

With proper funding, they can afford a conditioning program and a better coach.

I'd say being able to keep up the stamina is an integral part of hockey and that comes under the features that make someone a good player. Same for a coaches understanding of the game, a better and more skilled coach understands the intricacies of the game.

Although, the issue of money is also a huge one. Money buys talent.

De***o just won the Gold for Switzerland in Alpine. Norway (Svindal) got the Silver and America (Miller) the Bronze. I'm surprised Miller stayed in the Bronze spot so long. All the later skiers did pretty poorly, constantly getting 5 seconds behind the pace.

Canadian women face Switzerland at 2:30 PST. Then at 9 it's Sweden and Slovakia but unfortunately they probably won't broadcast that here.

Hmm, looks like his name got censored. It's D-e-f-a-g-o if anyone was wondering.
