Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse proved they’re still the best 2-man bobsleigh in the world, catching USA-1 on the final runs tonight. Humphries trailed American rival Elana Meyers by 0.23 after Tuesday. But the 28-year-old crushed the second day, making up all that time and then some. On the curling sheet, both of Canada’s teams advanced to the gold medal game, guaranteeing Canada two more medals. Finally, the Latvian men’s hockey team gave Canada a solid scare, pushing the maple leaf to the limit, before the Canucks would prevail 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.
