Going forward, ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are poised to win another medal. The reigning Olympic champions enter Monday free skate in second place, behind rivals Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the United States.
Canada kicked off the second half of the Sochi Olympics with its fourth multi medal performance of the Games.

I can be thankful enough. finished tied with American star Bode Miller in one minute 18.67 seconds. Kjetil Jansrud won the fourth straight Olympic super G gold medal for Norway in 1:18.14 and Andrew Weibrecht of the United States was second, 0.30 seconds behind.

On the men side, Jacobs had the hammer in the extra end against China and drew his last stone to the button for one that sealed the win and semifinal berth for Canada.
Meanwhile, it was a bumpy end to the round robin for Team Canada, which needed an overtime goal from Drew Doughty to defeat Finland 2 1. That means Canada qualified for the quarter finals in third spot and will face the winner of a qualification round match between Latvia and Switzerland. The stingy Swiss pose a real threat for a Canadian team trying to win its first medal on international sized ice.
That gave Jacobs six wins in a row and made his shaky start to the tournament a distant memory. The gold medal favourites opened with an unconvincing win over lowly Germany before suffering back to back losses to Sweden and Switzerland.

And it looks like there more hardware on the way.
In Monday medal competition, Maltais survived a wild semifinal run and came through with a strong effort in the final to sin silver. The result was vindication for Maltais, who had a disappointing showing at the Vancouver Olympics.
you come to an Olympics, there is so much hype about gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, especially with the Canadian men curling team because it is so successful, Jacobs said.
And both of Canada curling teams qualified for the playoffs. Jennifer Jones is guaranteed to finish atop the women standings with a win over the United States, and Brad Jacobs locked up second in the men standings with a thrilling extra end win over China.
But Jones, who has curled exceptionally in Sochi, didn miss on her winning draw for a point in the 11th.

Virtue, from London, Ont., and Moir, from Ilderton, Ont., scored 76.33 to finish 2.56 points behind American rivals Meryl Davis and Charlie White. It was far better then their performance in the team event, where they didn even appear to be in the same league as their American rivals.
decided to have revenge and show the world how good I can be and how fast I can be on the course, said the 33 year old rider from Petite Riviere St Francois, Que. last four years I have been improving myself and focusing to get faster on that kind of track just for today.
He suffered a herniated a disc in his lower back in mid January. It was so painful that he struggled to walk and under normal circumstances, he would have shut himself down. But he knew he needed to get some runs in so he entered a pair of World Cups right before Sochi.
The medals came after a bit of a lull for Canada, which started off the Games with a bang but slowed down with two silvers and a bronze over four days of competition heading into Sunday action. Canada now has 14 total medals (four gold, six silver, four bronze) and is still in the mix to attain its stated goal of winning the most medals in Sochi.

For Hudec, who has battled a series of injuries throughout his career, it was meant to be.
Also on the slopes, Jan Hudec won bronze in the men super G. The medal ended Canada 20 year podium drought in alpine skiing.

kind of let that get to us a little bit so we had to refocus, regroup and stay in the present. Forget about the gold medal. It was all mental. It character building. defending Olympic ice dance champions finished second in the short dance after laying down a virtually flawless performance.
Canada is tied with Norway for fourth in the overall medal standings, behind the Netherlands (17 medals) and Russia and the United States (16). Germany leads the gold medal standings with seven.
Maltais won bronze at the Turin Games when snowboard cross made its Olympic debut. She was a contender heading into Vancouver but a training crash left her battered and she didn advance to the elimination heats.
