10 Ways Canada Has Already Won The Winter Olympics
Canada has a heart of gold. And also just a lot of gold.
1. When the Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion released this response to Russia's anti-LGBT laws.
2. When an Olympic qualifier took one for Team Canada and gave up his spot to another teammate.
Gilmore Junio (left) gave up his spot in Sochi to Denny Morrison (right), a three-time Olympian who did not qualify in his 1,000-meter speedskating event during the trials in Calgary last month. “How Denny is skating now, I believe it’s in the best interest of the team if he races,” Junio said. "To represent Canada at the Olympics is a huge honour and privilege but I believe that as Canadians, we’re not just here to compete; we are here to win. Denny has proven to be a consistent medal threat in the distance."
