Canada lit up the first half of the Sochi day, Jan Hudec won Canada’s first men’s alpine medal in 20 years…then in the afternoon, Dominique Maltais nailed down a silver in ladies’ snowboard cross. Oh, and get this, Canada’s curling rinks are a combined 15-and-2. Thought we’d throw that in there. Finally, the night ended with Drew Doughty scoring both goals for the red and white, including an OT marker. Canada beat Finland 2-1.
History will be made in 2016 when Rio de Janeiro, Brazil hosts the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, marking the first time that a South American country will welcome the world to an Olympic Games. It is also just the third time that the Games will be held in the southern hemisphere, following Melbourne 1956 and Sydney 2000.
