I am very proud of our Canadian women today! The Canadian women’s hockey team overcame a 2-0 goal deficit in the third period to force overtime against the USA team and then scored again to win the Olympic GOLD medal. Marie-Philip Poulin scored both the tying goal and the game winning overtime goal for team Canada.
Earlier today, Jennifer Jones’ curling team beat Sweden in the championship final to win gold as well. This game was a nail biter too, with Sweden having a chance to tie the score or go ahead in the ninth end. Instead, Jones and the Canadian women’s team stole two points to head into the tenth end with a three point lead that Sweden could not rally from. As she threw her first rock in the tenth end, a smile lit Jennifer Jones’ face as she (and we) knew she was about to make the easy take out shot to run the Swedes out of rocks and win the gold medal.
Great job ladies!
