Canadian Medals from the 2006 Torino Olympic Games

Yes, it’s over and they were good ones. Only two countries (Germany and the USA) brought home more medals than our Canadian athletes. In addition, we came in first position for the number of 4th places (with 13). As I said before, this bodes extremely well for the Vancouver games.

I went to the web page of the Canadian Olympic Committee and stole their list of medal winners. You’ll note that 3/4 of them were obtained by our women.
