The Canadian Olympic Committee’s “Own The Podium” was widely criticized when Canada was having trouble winning Gold at the Vancouver Games. But in the end… we did, sort of.
We didn’t own ALL of the podium, the Americans did that with 37, but we did own the TOP, winning 14 gold. Our 26 medals in total was a bit of a disappointment, but only because the C.O.C. set a goal of 30-35. We didn’t reach that, but I think most Canadians are happy with the 14 Gold… and especially the Gold in Men’s Hockey. Its good to have expectations, but when we don’t reach them… does it lead to disappointment? Maybe. But again… WE WON GOLD IN MEN’S HOCKEY!!!!!
