Olympics Day 6 Recap: Team CA

Olympic Sports

February 09, 2022

🏂 Snowboard: Prince George native Meryeta O’Dine won snowboard cross bronze in her Olympic debut this morning. A true redemption story, O’Dine had to withdraw from PyeongChang 2018 with a concussion just two days before her event.

  • Canada could keep the snowboard medals coming with Brooke D’Hondt — red and white’s youngest athlete at the age of 16 (!!!) — and Elizabeth Hosking, ranked 10th and ninth, respectively, heading into tonight’s 8:30 p.m. ET women’s halfpipe finals.

🥌 Curling: Team Gushue came ready to rock in their first day of men’s curling round-robin play, claiming a 10–5 win over Denmark this morning. Next up in the quest to add another medal to Gushue’s 2006 Turin gold is Norway, tomorrow at 1:05 a.m. ET.

💨 Speed skating: In a photo finish, Steven Dubois skated to a silver medal in the men’s 1,500m this morning, marking Canada’s third-ever medal in the event. Allez!

  • After a brutal last-second fall in the women’s 1,000m heats this morning, 2018 silver medalist Kim Boutin bounced back and helped Canada advance to Sunday’s 3,000m relay finals.
