Day 3 TOP THREE:

Alex Bilodeau made history a habit on Monday night. He became the first Canadian man to repeat as Olympic champion in an individual event. He was also the first Canuck to win a home gold back at Vancouver 2010. His rival and friend Mikaël Kingsbury won the silver tonight. Earlier in the day Charles Hamelin won the short track 1500m at Iceberg.

Oh, and…Don Cherry gave us a shout out.
