The Women Are Pushing Canada Up

Although Canada's men hockey team lost to Russia 0-2 (the third shoot-out in the tournament) and can not play for a medal but three women gained three valuable medals for Canada and pushed the country to the 4th place in day 13. Cindy Klassen and Kristina Groves won gold and silver in 1500 m long track speed skating and Chandra Crawford won cross-country gold in 1.1 Km sprint. Norway which was taking the lead in the early days of Olympic now is one level lower than Canada in the 5th place.
Four out of five gold medals of Team Canada have been won by Canadian women. They won their gold in mogul skiing, cross-country Skiing, ice hockey and speed skating.
Canada had a weak win against Czech Republic yesterday. They beat the Czechs 3-2. all the scores were gained in the first period and then they hung out to them. They were lucky that didn't lose that one! The US men hockey team lost to Finland 3-4 and that made both finalists of the past Olympic out!
