Sochi Olympics Open Thread - February 20

Hopefully Jennifer has an even better celebration today.... - Paul Gilham

Gold is on the table for Canada in women's hockey and curling today!

The events are limited today, but they are important in Canada's books. We have already guaranteed at least silver in the women's hockey and curling, and today's gold-medal matches will determine if we can jump back up to where the egotistical USA is sitting in the medal standings!

Curling

It’s finally time to watch Canada claim another gold in women’s curling!!! Both the medal matches are today! The bronze medal match at 12:30 will have Great Britain against Switzerland, while Canada and Sweden will battle for gold at 17:30.

Figure Skating

After yesterday’s short program, the ladies now go for gold in the free program. Kaetlyn Osmond is sitting in 13th after the shorts at 18 points shy of the leaders, while Gabrielle Daleman is in 20th. The skating starts at 19:00.

Freestyle Skiing

It will be a busy day on the slopes. First of all, we have the men’s ski cross happening. Canada will be represented by Christopher Delbosco, Brady Leman and David Duncan. Seeding starts at 11:45, followed by 1/8 finals at 13:30, quarterfinals at 14:05, semifinals at 14:25, and finals at 14:41.

Meanwhile, the ladies will take on the ski halfpipe. Rosalind Groenewoud and Keltie Hansen will represent Canada. Qualification starts at 18:30, followed by the finals at 21:30.

Ice Hockey

After yesterday’s qualifications for the men, they can have the day off. The women complete their tournament today with the gold and bronze medal matches. At 16:00, Switzerland and Sweden will battle for bronze. Following that, we have yet another Canada-USA gold medal match to win at 21:00.

Nordic Combined

Just like in the individual Gundersen LH event, all 4 team members will make a jump on the large hill, with the points adjusting their head start in the 4x5km cross-country relay. Seeing as how there were no Canadians in the individual events, it would be downright impossible to have a team in this event. The jumping starts at 12:00, with the cross-country relay starting at 15:00.

Be sure to check out the official Sochi Olympics, CBC Olympics, and Team Canada Olympics websites for lots of coverage and results.

Canada go!
