Day 1

28 Jul

So Day 1 of the Olympics is underway and so far Canada hasn’t hit their stride. 

The men’s rowing 8 finished last in their heat and is into the repechage round. The team won gold in Beijing but only a few members are still on the team.  Good luck with the repechage round!

In women’s soccer we defeated South Africa 3-0 after losing to Japan.  Next game against Sweden to see if we get to play in the quarter-finals.

Scott Dickens and Katerine Savard are both through in swimming, 100m breaststroke and 100m butterfly respectively. Finals tonight. Ryan Cochrane was out of the 400m freestyle when Park Tae-hwan from Korea successfully challenged his disqualification due to a false start.

Best events I’ve watched today have to be the men’s road race and the Canadian men’s beach volleyball match against Great Britain. The volleyball just kept going back and forth until the 2nd set when Canada ran away with it.  For the road race the British team was leading for much of the race but due to a small crash nearing the end of the 400 km 5 hr race they fell back.  Gold to Kazakhstan!


More events to come!
