Go Canada!

It seems that all Canada had to do was be patient... or wait until an unassuming American visiting their country blogs about their lack of medals.

After Saturday's competition, Canada went from having zero medals on Friday to seven on Saturday. The medal haul included four medals in rowing (one gold, silver, two bronzes) and two in women's freestyle wrestling (one gold, one bronze). Their other medal was a silver in swimming in the 1500m freestyle.

Man, can those Canucks row; they medaled in the following rowing events: Men's Pair, Men's Eight, Men's Lightweight Fours and Men's Lightweight Double Sculls. I have no idea what most of those are, but I am nevertheless thrilled for my northern neighbors.
Now bring on the Winter Games: Curling, Hockey, Bobsleigh, skiing and skating... Canada can compete and win!
