At least they are fairly unbiased. I was in the states during the london games jesus you would think the only good athletes there were american and everyone else just won cause the americans screwed up.

China is not that good at the Winter Olympics. Germany and Norway are more worthy competitors.

Just subtract 12 from the hours that are above 12 since you can't go higher than 12.

is it me or is that American girl who won Bronze in the Moguls a bit of a whining *****? Instead of saying "They did a better job, good for them!", she goes on about "I gave them the win. I should be #1 but I just didn't feel like trying".? What a load of crap. More reason I want USA to FAIL!

this is a continuing trend of behaviour amongst American athletes particularly when it involves Canada. pretty lame.

No one can beat an American but themselves...if they lose it is because they did something wrong.....it is how they are brought up through their education system.....they are the best at everything and anything

I have plenty of respect for their athletes and people in their country in general... when it comes to us though, I'd almost go so far as to say the vast majority of Americans believe they are the only country on the continent.

As reported earlier by CBC..The Canadian Olympic Woman's hockey team, will be experimenting with a modified version of the Dallas Eakins ,"Swarm defense."



All the best, to our athletes in Sochi...

This has probably been beaten to death, but how in the **** did Duchene make the Olympic team over Hall or Giroux. Hall has significantly outproduced Duchene, having scored more goals and more assists (6 points total) in 2 fewer games. I seriously can not wrap my head around his inclusion on the team.

I understand Hall and to a lesser extent Giroux not being on the team, but I don't see how Duchene made it over St. Louis in the first place.
