    Actually it's 23 medals total, not all are gold, only 8. Canada has a total of 8 medals, 4 of them gold.

    And considering the USA population is ten times Canada and the size of the USA olympic budget, you should have a lot more medals.

    Maybe you should reserve your response until after the hockey game later today.........

      I''ve got the US as 6-Gold, 7-Silver and 10-Bronze unless I am missing something.

        Canada is doing well for their population to athlete ratio.

        But they have not "dominated the podium" if that is what they predicted to do to this point.

          You are correct, Mark, the 6 must have blurred out on my computer into an 8.

              Actually, J.C., it was "Own the Podium" which was more of a corporate thing than an athlete thing. It actually limited cross-training between Canadian athletes and athletes from other countries as a type of funding requirement/limitation.

              "Own the Podium" wasn't/isn't a common belief among the Canadian populace. As a matter of fact, myself and a friend of mine were rolling our eyes at the whole "Own the Podium" thing this morning.

                    The bobsled team didn't make the cut, but there is at least one guy in the Olympics, according to this Sun article anyways......

                      If I remember right (didn't read the article) he is an American skier cut from the U.S. Olympic Team but has dual citizenship.

                              Too bad they don't give metals for couch potatoes. The US would really kick a$$ in that category.
