College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
Today marks day 14 of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. There are six events going today that will end with a gold, silver or bronze winner. Two of those medals will be handed out on the ice. As predicted from the start of the Olympics, it’s Canada versus the US in Women’s hockey. Simply no other country can compete with these two power houses when it comes to this sport. Canada was gold in the last Olympics, but the States have won the last two World Championships. Sticking with the ladies and ice, the Women’s free skate goes tonight and Canadian Joannie Rochette sits in third with her sights on the two women ahead of her. Frankly with every that has gone on in her life this week, it would be an incredible accomplishment to win any kind of medal. The other four medals will be decided using skis and poles – well skis at least. Starting with Nordic combined – the large hill ski jump (sans poles) and 10 km cross country (avec poles) start this afternoon. In the Women’s cross-country there’s no ‘I’ in team as the ladies battle in the 4 X 5km relay. On the slopes the second runs of the ladies giant slalom goes down. While at Cypress Mountain the men wrap up their aerials event. In Curling both the Men’s and Women’s teams are in semi-final action. Cheryl Bernard and her ladies are currently up 6-4 at the end of the ninth end against Switzerland. Later on Kevin Martin and his posse taken on the Swedes.
