TWENTY-FOUR medals! Woohoo!
To my American friends, yes, I know you still beat us by one, but you've got about ten times the population, so you'll have to let us enjoy this - as close as we've ever come to matching your powerhouse.
A nice lead-in to 2010 in Vancouver, I'd say. Congratulations to all the athletes - you make us proud. Especially our home-town girls, Cindy Klassen and Clara Hughes.
