    Short and Long Track Speed Skating

    Pretty exciting sport. I don't think I breathed during some of those races.

    Yay to Apolo's 6th medal and JR's 1st! I actually thought Olivier might have a chance but just imagine all 3 Koreans went down and Apolo won gold with Olivier winning bronze.

    Time to watch Moguls!

    Now that was some kind of race!!

    Feel bad for Charles Hamelin, but I knew after the first lap his legs just weren't w/him tonight. :sad:

    They're replaying the Mens Long Track Race from earlier on CTV and I just wiped the drool off the TV *again* after watching Sven Kramer's Gold Medal Race. That man's strokes down the straightaways...So fluid and gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!

    Did you all know this was The Netherlands' 100th Gold Medal when you combine both Summer and Winter Games? Considering how much they love their Speed Skating, very fitting that 100th Gold Medal for them comes from *their* sport.

    I was so happy to see both Apolo and JR win silver and bronze! Go Washington state!! I wish the koreans had taken the other korean with them.. Apolo would have won the gold! To bad!

    Sven!

    Was watching earlier a report from Mary Carillo when she was in Holland and saw how much the Dutch love the sport (even giving love to Shani Davis). I just love the Orange People! :D

    Since Jenn Heil didn't win gold, you think Clara will be the first today for Canada?
