Open Olympic Thread Day 11 - Pick up the pace, Canada!

1232615_bin_medium

Yesterday was a rather big day for Canada.  Kristina Groves earned her 2nd medal of the games for Canada by getting silver in the ladies' speed skating.  This was quickly overshadowed, however, by the disappointing performance of a certain Team Canada hockey team.  I will not go into detail about the game, mainly because I didn't get to watch it until the replay was on CTV this morning......

Anyways, today is a good day for Canada to pick up the pace.  We have Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir who participate in the Free Dance tonight, currently ranked in 1st after the first 2 dances, and could possibly win gold tonight.  Also, Canada's good hockey team takes on Finland in the semifinals for women's hockey.  Schedule after the jump, check out vancouver2010.com and ctvolympics.ca for tons of Canadian coverage.

Unfortunately, due to my being lazy last night and running late this morning, this thread is going up extremely late.  My apologies.  Not much was missed this morning, Canada beat USA 7-2 in men's curling, and our ladies came in 7th for the Ladies' Cross-Country Team Sprint Free Skiing final.  Here's what is left for today:

12:00 (right now) Women's Hockey - Semifinals - USA vs Sweden

13:29 (right now) Cross-Country Skiing Men's Team Sprint Free Final (medal event)

14:00 Women's Curling: Russia vs China, Japan vs Switzerland, Sweden vs Canada, Great Britain vs Denmark
