Add up all these factors and I'd rate this overall performance just a hair below 2010, so no complaints from me. If battling with the other heavy hitters for a top 3 or 4 spot in the medal charts is what we can continue to expect going forward, I'm certainly satisfied.
Agreed, Kyle. There will always be favourites who are gonna come up short and up and comers who will rise to the occasion, so the fact that we really didn't digress overall relative to other countries who can be considered our main challengers for the medal count in the Winter Olympics, I think there's every reason to be happy/optimistic/proud.
