Winning isn't everything, but the will to win is everything. - Vince Lombardi

What an incredible Winter Olympics for Canada! What started as an Olympics where the whispers were, "Is Canada going to once again fail to win a gold medal at its own Olympics?" quickly gave way to delirious jubilation as Canada started to heap up the gold medals. Now Canada stands first in the world as the country that won the most gold medals of any country in any Winter Olympics. Kudos to all the athletes, their coaches, their families and all the volunteers who helped make this one of Canada's best Olympics.
