Canada won both gold and silver in women’s 2-man bobsleigh. It should be called 2-women bobsleigh but it’s not.
Kaillie Humphries of Calgary and Heather Moyse from Summerside PEI took gold, while Helen Upperton of Calgary and Shelley Ann Brown of Pickering captured silver.
I understand completely why so many great amateurs are from Calgary. It’s where most of Olympic training facilities are located. And it’s nice to see someone from Pickering, near Toronto and home of Mike Willianson and Christopher Cordahi, on the Olympic team.
And Prince Edward Island, that little jewel of an island province, a place that would be heaven on earth if there weren’t so many bad snowstorms.
Canada’s a great country.
Yay for these four ladies!!
Canada’s medal count of 7 gold, 6 silver and 2 bronze for 15 puts them in fourth place, behind the US, Germany, and Norway.
