MedalistsEdit

Notable eventsEdit

  • Canada won double gold in ice hockey after going 50 years without a gold medal. Both the women's and men's teams won gold, beating the United States in both games.
  • Marc Gagnon, a short-track speed skater, won double gold, and a bronze medal. One of his golds was for the 5000 m relay team.
  • Catriona Le May Doan capped off an impressive speed skating career winning gold in the 500 m. She became the first Canadian to defend their gold medal, which she first won at the 1998 Games.[1][2]
  • Jamie Salé and David Pelletier won gold in the pairs figure skating event. They were given the gold after a controversy involving the French judge of their event. Both the Canadians and their Russian rivals would win gold in the same event.
  • Beckie Scott became the first North American to win a medal in cross-country skiing, when she placed third in her event. Later on however, she was bumped up to gold when the two finishers ahead of her were disqualified.
  • Clara Hughes made the transition from bronze medalist cyclist to bronze medalist speed skater when she finished 3rd in the 5000 m.
  • Jeremy Wotherspoon, expected to win gold in his event, but disappointed many when he tripped and fell after starting in his 500 m event.
  • Elvis Stojko finished his career with an 8th-place finish in the men's figure skating event.
