I erred, Poulin has scored 7 out of the 10 goals the women have scored in Gold Medal games since 2010. The rest is accurate though.Marie Poulin is a hockey machine. She has scored 70% of the goals the Canadian Women have scored in Olympic hockey since 2010. She is also the current record holder for scoring more goals in the Olympics than any other hockey player, male or female, in Winter Olympics history.
A future Hall of Famer no doubt.
TSN did a wonderful retrospective of all the Olympic hockey games played by US and Canadians teams over the years. Players from both countries took part and talked about the competitions and skills on both sides. I thoroughly enjoyed it as it gave a great perspective on the respect each side has for the other. Your team played their hearts out, Tec and I have respect for them all.Your team did all of Canada proud, Mo. And there's no disgrace to us in taking silver. Nor in being beaten by such an excellent team.

Sub-zero temperatures and penises just don’t mix.

This was particularly the case for skier Remi Lindholm, of Finland, who had to place a heat pack on his groin after finishing a 50-kilometre cross-country race at the Beijing Games on Saturday, Reuters reported.
That’s because his penis froze during the race. He pushed through freezing winds during the course of one hour and 16 minutes.
And it’s not the first time this has happened during a cross-country competition. A similar incident had occurred in Ruka, Finland, in 2021.
“You can guess which body part was a little bit frozen when I finished … it was one of the worst competitions I’ve been in. It was just about battling through,” said Lindholm. “When the body parts started to warm up after the finish, the pain was unbearable.”
With fear of frostbite during the race, organizers delayed its start and shortened it by 20 kilometres. While competitors wore thin layers of material on their body, their suits didn’t protect them from the cold.
The men's 50km mass start race at the Beijing Games was shortened to 30km but that did little to help Finland's Remi Lindholm, who needed a heat pack at the end of the race to thaw out a particularly sensitive body part.reuters.com
