Lucky 13 went to Edmonton curling skip Kevin Martin, who piloted the Canadian rink to a convincing 6-3 win over Norway, the same country that denied him gold eight years ago in Salt Lake City.
After keeping their best poker faces on for the duration of the game, Martin, second Marc Kennedy, third John Morris and lead Ben Hebert jumped for joy when it was over, hugging on the ice as a thunderous ovation rained down from the partisan Canadian crowd.
In terms of gold medals alone, the total gave Canada the record for most gold medals claimed by a host nation at its own Winter Games — previously 10, won by the U.S. in Salt Lake City in 2002 and by Norway in Lillehammer in 1994. Can the mens hockey team break the all time record tommorow?
GO CANADA GO !!!
