More medals for Canada

Some athletes have been personally banned by the IOC. But my guess is that 90-95% of eligible Russian athletes will compete under the Olympic flag. Including all the hockey players.

It would seem likely that the KHL will forbid all players in the league from competing.

Mixed doubles curling is awesome.  You can see the hate in the teammates eyes when one person screws up.

The girls have been fucking more shit up.  Unpopular to say, but true.

Canada with silver in team luge.

Women's curling team is 0-2.  They were a strong contender for gold.  Not sure if they still have a shot anymore.  They have to run the table for a shot at anything I'd think.

0-3 now. They would need to win their next 6 games and hope that Korea and Great Britain get beat a few more times. Need to be in the top 4 to make the playoff round.
Canada has never not been on the podium for Curling...
