Despite the unexpected losses, Canada’s winter Olympic performance has been at its best.

Canada has won the best Olympic MEDALS so far in pyeongchang, despite the country’s usually dominant men’s and women’s hockey and the absence of curling from men and women.

The country has 29 MEDALS, including 11 gold MEDALS. Norway finished with 38 MEDALS and Germany finished second with 31, while the United States finished fourth with 23.

For the first time in the millennium, Canada did not win a gold medal in women’s hockey. Last week’s final game with the United States ended with a 2-2 draw. Both teams did not get a sudden death goal in overtime – and the final penalty shoot-out ended with a 2-2 draw. This led the team to a high risk, sudden death, where the United States came out on top, breaking Canada’s fourth consecutive gold winning streak from 2002 to 2014.

The women’s hockey team’s record is not the only Canadian gold winning streak to join pyeongchang. The men’s curling team won gold in 2006, 2010 and 2014 – but lost to Switzerland in bronze this year. The country did win a gold medal in curling: caitlin louse and John morris won the curling MEDALS.

The forgotten Olympia: even without a medal winner.

The forgotten Olympia: even without a medal winner.

Canada won a gold medal in the 1920 Antwerp men’s hockey game and won the gold in the next three winter games. It wasn’t until 1964 that they won MEDALS in every winter game, winning gold in vancouver in 2010 and sochi in 2014. Men’s hockey is Canada’s third gold medal in pyeongchang: the country was made bronze after being eliminated from the finals in Germany.

Finally, Canada lost discipline in the women’s curling movement. In this country for the first time in 1998 won the gold medal in women’s curling championship in nagano, and since then has won the gold medal each winter season – until after a series of tough losses in pyeongchang ranked sixth. Sweden won the gold medal, while South Korea’s “garlic girl” won the silver medal and Japan won the bronze medal.

Despite the loss of traditional gold resources, the country won the second-highest overall gold medal in pyeongchang in 14 games at the 2010 vancouver Olympics.

Canada this year received 11 pyeongchang gold: freestyle skiing four times, figure skating, four curling doubles, one skiing in men’s doubles, men’s running speed skating once, a man short track speed skating is another man skis. The country has eight silver and ten bronze MEDALS.

Among the gold medal winners are figure skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who are among the top 225 athletes competing in the Canadian team. Short track speed skater Kim butin will be the national flag at the closing ceremony after winning two bronze MEDALS and one silver.
