Monumental Day 13 for Canada, as our female Olympians took center stage in two much-anticipated match ups in Women’s Curling and Hockey, both winning Gold in dramatic fashion! Canada jumps up to 5th place in the medal standings with 7 Gold, 9 Silver and 4 Bronze. #WEAREWINTER

In Women’s Curling, Team Sweden proved to be Team Jennifer Jones’ toughest opponents of the Sochi Games. The two teams traded points for most of the game with a 3-3 tie after 5. It wasn’t until the 8th frame when Team Canada move ahead with a single point and put the game away in the 9th end, scoring a double to win 6-3! Team Jennifer Jones broke another Olympic record by becoming the first Women’s team to go undefeated at the Olympics en route to winning Gold in Curling.  Team Canada’s Gold medalists in Women’s Curling are: Janet Arnott (Coach), Jennifer Jones (Skip), Jill Officer (Second), Kaitlyn Lawes (Third), Dawn McEwen (Lead), and Kirsten Wall (Alternate).

Women’s Hockey Coach, Kevin Dineen, engineered one of the biggest comebacks in Olympic gold medal game history when the team erased a 2-0 deficit to Team USA in the last 3-1/2 minutes of regulation. Oakville native, Forward Brianne Jenner deflected the 1st goal for Canada off a US Defenceman with 3:26 in the 3rd period to cut the 2 goal deficit in half. With less than 2 minutes left and the Canadian net empty, Dineen played 5 forwards with 1 defenceman. Forward Marie-Philip Poulin tied the game with 54.6 seconds remaining in regulation, resulting in cheers heard across Canada! Both teams traded penalties to start overtime, then a US Forward took a penalty for cross-checking giving Canada a power play! With Poulin at the bottom of the right face-off circle, she took a pass from Laura Fortino to score the winning goal with a quick wrist shot! Canada won 3-2 in OT, setting a new Winter Olympics record by winning Gold in 4 consecutive Games.
