Don't you mean 14 Gold in one is Excellent?
We set a world record here, no one else has done this in the Winter Games!
You're suppose to bow, and say well done!

The point was the U.S.S.R had the old record at 13 gold medals... but then again that was a bunch of countries working together in one. Now all those countries that separated compete under their own country name. Back then there were way less events I think is the point he was trying to make. So for us Canadians to get 14 now with more events breaks the re ...[text shortened]... fore compared to the amount available (way less back then).
Canada did awesome either way
Originally posted by Very RustyWell done, Canada! Gold standard and great games. I was thoroughly impressed! Hope the Russian games are this good!

Yes, after not having any Gold in our previous two Winter Olympics at Home, it is really a big accomplishment. Plus no one has more for now, and will not for at least 4 years.
Originally posted by Very RustyThis has to exceed Canadian expectations, the fact they won gold in both men's and women's hockey was even sweeter. There must have been a lot of pressure on both teams
Canada has the most Gold Medals ever won at the Winter games with that number 14. Also was their first Gold Medal ever on Canadian soil.
