Team Canada Sets Olympic Gold Medal Record in Winter Games
Team Canada has set the Olympic gold medal record in the Winter Games with 14. Canada broke the record with a 3-2 overtime victory over the USA in the Men's Hockey final.
Before Sunday's game, Canada sat tied with Norway and the Soviet Union as the only nations to win 13 gold medals at a Winter Games, but now Canada stands alone at 14. After a stuttering start, Canada has to call their "Own the Podium" initiative a success.
The 13 gold medals is also a record for a host nation, breaking the previous mark of 10 set by the United States and Norway.
The United States won the medal race with a total of 37, and the Germans had a strong showing with 30. Canada will finish in third place for total medals with 26. But the focus will be on the gold medals, as it was only a few weeks ago that Canada had failed to win a gold medal on home soil. Now Canada has 14.
