Olympics Day 5 Recap: Team CA

Olympic Sports

February 08, 2022

🏒 Hockey: Hey Google, play “Party in the USA.” Canada downed storied rival Team USA 4–2 in the much-anticipated round-robin matchup last night. The highlight? An Olympic-first penalty-shot goal by none other than Canadian “Captain Clutch” Marie-Philip Poulin.

Figure Skating: After dealing with COVID-19 issues, Keegan Messing finally hit the ice last night in the men’s short program. The ever-smiling Messing finished ninth, advancing to tomorrow’s free skate competition for a chance to win a medal.

🎿 Freestyle ski: Despite leading the competition in the qualifiers, Megan Oldham just missed the big air podium, finishing in fourth, with fellow Canadian Olivia Asselin coming in eighth in their Olympic debuts.

  • Oldham’s not done yet though — she’ll continue her medal hunt in slopestyle on Sunday.
