23 - One last GOLD before the end of the Games. I am so proud of the men's hockey performance. They deserve every ounce of gold.
21 - I am so excited that I am a part of the Canadian Team because we have Women's Hockey behind us and they won Gold again in Sochi! Congratulations to former training partner Jennifer Wakefield.
17 - Just another reason why the Athlete's Village is so cool to be in!!
16 - SNOWBOARD MEDALS!!! I am so excited for fellow snowboarder Dominique Maltais for winning a silver medal in the women's snowboardcross event for Canada. She has fulfilled her long dream of winning. I know she has been through injury and has worked so very hard for this day. I am so proud of her and her representation of Canada!
14 - I am so overwhelmed by all the people pouring with messages of congratulations. Most of all I love the messages from the kids. One girl made an awesome poster for me and another wants to snowboard once she gets her cast off. I am so touched by all the admiration I have received by everyone. All I did was follow my dream as best as I could!
12 - Wow!! This is the best day of my life so far. I made it to semi-finals, just missed out on finals, and won top Canadian with a 13th placing in the Olympics. Alex Duckworth also rode in semis, and I am sure Mercedes would be there too but she got a beat down in practice, but still put down a good run in qualifiers. I am so stoked to be a part of an awesome team. Thanks to my coaches Crispin Lipscomb and Dan Raymond, my great support staff, my family, friends, donors, and supporters for watching at the event and from afar. I can't explain how grateful I am to have the best people behind me. I would have never gotten this far if it wasn't for them!!
11 - The men's halfpipe event was so exciting today. I am proud of the Canadian men's team riding respectable runs in qualifiers, but it was a tough contest and Derek Livingston was close to making semi-finals. I am extra stoked for now two time Olympian and my coach, mentor, and best friend Crispin Lipscomb for showing the kids how to ride today!! And how crazy was it that Shawn White didn't win!! He still took it like a champion and he will be remembered for his gentlemen like sportsmanship.
10 - Practice is going really well and Development Snowparks have done an amazing job at creating one of the best halfpipes in the world. Here is what it looks like
