Canadian Olympic roundup:

1. Disappointing day for men’s four-man bobsleigh teams

It was a heartbreaking day for the third Canadian men’s bobsleigh team.

2. No medal in speedskating

Canada’s Denny Morrison, Lucas Makowsky and Mathieu Giroux vied for the bronze medal in team pursuit. After a strong start, Poland picked up speed on the final laps and won the race. Canada missed the podium by just a few seconds. Read the full story.

3. No medal in parallel slalom

Canada’s Caroline Calve was a favourite to earn a medal in the women’s parallel snowboard slalom but she failed to qualify after finishing 26th overall. Two other Canadians, Marianne Leeson and Ariane Lavigne, did not advance beyond the qualification round.

How to accept and show off a gold medal, curling edition

There was so much gold flashing on Canadian curlers in Sochi today, it pushed the Golden Gauge to … well, see for yourself:

Our athletes were positively sparkling from head to toe.

All that gold was almost bedazzling. Fortunately, Canada’s curlers received some guidance on how to see past the glare and make their way to the podium. 

Both teams collected their hardware without a hitch, and showed off their new bling on social media.

Now the only question is how to keep all that gold glittering?

Perhaps ask ski-cross gold-medal winner Marielle Thompson? She seems to have it all figured out:

Finland scored two goals less than 11 seconds apart in the second period, and another three in the third, to jump ahead of the Americans in the bronze medal game.

The U.S. came off a tough 1-0 loss to Team Canada a day earlier, and seemed to have lost their will to win. The Americans were undefeated in Sochi before the semi-finals, dominating opposing underdog teams like Slovakia and Slovenia.

The Finns lost against Sweden in the semi-finals but shocked the dominant Russian team in the quarter-finals, winning 3-1.

The ashes of Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke were spread at the halfpipe, on top of a mountain and near the Olympic rings in the athletes’ village at the 2014 Winter Games.

Freestyle coach Trennon Paynter says he distributed the ashes in the halfpipe after training sessions but prior to the competition.

Burke was killed in 2012 after a training accident on a superpipe in Park City, Utah. Athletes wanted to wear stickers in her memory, but were not allowed under Olympic regulations. Read the full story.
