Canada’s Golden Moments from the Sochi 2014 Olympics
It was a stellar year for the Canadian Olympic team and they did our nation proud. Here, we look back at some of Canada’s golden moments from the Sochi 2014 Olympics.
The Canadian women’s hockey team came back in dramatic style to win over the Americans in overtime.
Justine Dufour-Lapointe won Canada’s first gold medal in Sochi in the moguls event.
Alex Bilodeaux holds the distinction of being the first Canadian to win gold on home soil (Vancouver 2010). At Sochi, he defended his title, once again winning the top spot in the moguls event.
Jennifer Jones, one of the nation’s most decorated curlers, finally touched down on Olympic soil for the first time and claimed the gold to mark the occasion.
And both men’s and women’s teams locked down gold medals as well. It was clear to see: Canada dominates curling.
Although Patrick Chan mouthed, “I’m sorry,” to the cameras after his silver finish in the men’s skating competition, he’s ultimately our golden boy on the ice–cute, charming, articulate and a star.
Bobsleders Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse came back from behind to win gold–just as they did in Vancouver 2010.
Speed skater Gilmore Junio selflessly gave up his spot on the ice so that his teammate Denny Morrison could compete–and win silver–instead.
