Maelle Ricker wins gold for Canada

Maelle Ricker of Canada has won gold in the ladies snowboard cross competition today.  “Way to go Maelle!  We love you!  Canada is very proud of you.”

This is Canada’s second gold medal of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games so far.  Canadians are going wild over our medal wins and we seem to be getting most of them from Cypress Mountain.

Yesterday, Mike Robertson also won silver in the same event for mens snowboard cross competition.  Yeahhh Mike!

Go Canada Go!

  1. Gary, that will be THE game to watch. It starts Sunday, Feb. 21 @ 4:40PM (pacific). I’ll be glued on the tube and waving my flag.

    Hopefully, I think our Canadian mens hockey has learned from our past mistakes…coming only in 7th place in Turino.
