13 medals now. We have already improved on our Olympic results from 2004 and, of course, we are now ahead of Belarus. Now if we could just get the medals in the first week next time Canada will be have a very impressive haul in 2012.

I don’t know about anyone else…I’m not surprised that the US and China have the most medals. China injected huge amounts of money into its program for these games. The US has always sent a strong team because they have probably have the most funding. It’s all about money. That’s the foundation of any good Olympic program. Or any program for that matter.

Part of our problem is that we accept that whole…’I tried my best…I’m happy to be here’ line. Don’t get me wrong, I do respect our athletes a great deal because they have put so much time and effort into preparing for the Olympics. Many of them have ‘day jobs’. So, to balance the both is impressive. However…(like our health care) if we as Canadians don’t demand better, we won’t get better. Look at hockey…it was in a state of emergency at one point. Changes were made to the overall program. More time into development. People were worried about our program. People talked about it. We cared.

Has anyone ever been bummed because we won a silver on the trampoline instead of the gold?

Has the kayaking program ever gone a major overhaul because we didn’t win a medal one year?

We’d be disappointed with a silver (or no medal) in hockey though. That’s the difference.

We like our hockey…the rest is secondary really.

On a side note…I’m having a really hard time getting into these Olympics. Maybe it’s the time zone thing…I’m not sure. Does anyone have ‘Olympic Fever’?

Not to mention the dismal failure of the U.S. relay teams....funny how both the men and women teams...who were the odds on favourite...both get dsq in their heat. What a joke...this has shades of Mike Johnson pulling up lame against the fastest man in the world at the time....Donovan Bailey...In typical U.S. fashion they "conveniently" get dsq because they know they won't win...which makes me wonder why they haven't pulled out of the middle east yet...
