I almost expect the USA to be at the top of the score board with an astounding 539 athletes at the Games. China has a close second in medals with only 384 athletes, still much lower considering the population of both counties.
Then there is Canada with our 281 athletes, and a fraction of the population compared to the powerhouses of USA and China. Still we're holding our own and currently in 11th place; great for a small country that is 35th on the list of world populations, much lower than any of the countries who are the top of the score board. This just shows that Canadians love sport!
Jessica is scheduled to start her seven event competition tomorrow and I am excited for her to start as she is the first to begin of the three I am following closely.
Regardless, I have been anxiously following all my Canadian athletes through the press and twitter feeds. I love seeing the medal count grow every day as our dedicated, diligent, and brave athletes achieve their dreams though following their passions. No matter what their finish is I am proud to have them representing my country. To even make it to the Olympics is a feat and a journey, I should know, I am on the path myself right now!
