Haven't seen another thread directly on topic.
A couple with oblique references.

Miracle on Ice happened in Lake Placid with some Wisconsin Badger Hockey players on Team USA.
One of those was Mark Johnson. Who is the current Coach for Wisconsin Badger's Hockey.
Currently there are 9 Wisconsin Badger Women's Hockey players competing in the Winter Olympics. 5 on one team, 4 on another. Team USA and Team Canada are expected to be opponents in the final game for Gold. All 9 players could be in the same final game.

I would expect Team Canada to be in the gold medal round for hockey.

Also Canada now has 10medals in its possession.

I think I heard that Canada has won Gold in every Olympic Women's Hockey since the category became Olympic, except the first year when USA took Gold.

I think you are right JSF. And my money is on Canada to do it again.

It seemed a little funny that 4 or 5 of the best Women's Hockey players in Canada wanted to play as Wisconsin Badgers - they dreamed of it as kids. And Miracle on Ice must have been 2 decades before they were born.
Almost sounds as if there is no place in Canada to play Hockey. At least not as much as Wisconsin. Maybe it's all that warm weather in Madison, a top national Party School.

Perhaps American women have better things to do than play silly games. Did you ever think of that Brenda?

Canada has picked up a 4th bronze medal which makes 11 medals in total. We are now just behind the USA.

I hope you're good a math. There are 36 million Canadians that supply you with your team. There are 324 million Americans that supply us with our team.

Do the math and give Canada a handicap. It's only fair. Make sense?

Hey, if Team Canada comes home with more medals than you all. Welp, I'll be glad.

I think it would be amazing if you even came close to medaling the same or better than the U.S.. If you look at high schools with the best winning records, they are the biggest ones. Do you get where I am going with this The fact that you and even other smaller countries are leading in medals is incredible.

Are you stupid?
The thread title has WINTER Olympics. Canada has far more WINTER than almost all of the contiguous United States. Vast swaths, possibly a majority of Americans don't even know what WINTER is.
I would generally be surprised if Canada did not have significant collection of Medals in any WINTER Olympics. Likewise Norway Sweden, Greenland, Iceland.
The US teen Gold winner from Torrance needed her dad to drive 10 hours round trip each weekend for her to have snow to practice with, at Mammoth. Many Canadians can practice in their backyard every day, some even every day of the year.

Have 13 medals now. And Toronto is a pretty big city as is Vancouver. Lots of our winter athletes come from those two cities and also Montreal and Quebec City.

I just had a look at Canada's medal count and we now have 15 medals. 5 gold, 5 silver and 5 bronze.

USA just picked up a 9th medal.

Looks like Canada is 3rd place for Medals total.

Did Canada catch up to 2nd place in Medal totals?
Are there enough Medals remaining for Canada to jump into first?

3 fresh Golds, good day.

No we are still behind Germany. They have 20 and Norway have 28.

First might be a stretch but I'm thinking second is a good chance.
