OLYMPIC ROUNDUP: Two more medals push Canada into third place

A gold in ski cross and a bronze in bobsleigh as men’s hockey advances to the semis

Team Canada added a gold and a bronze to the country’s total, making for 21 medals as of Day 12.

While you were sleeping:

Brady Leman took home a gold to give Canada its first Olympic medal in men’s ski cross.

“It hasn’t really sunk in yet. It’s something I have been working so hard for, for 10-plus years now, especially the last four after coming fourth in Sochi,” said Leman.

“To battle back from that and stay strong and confident in myself is huge, and I’m just so proud right now.”

Kaillie Humphries and three-time Olympian Phylicia George took home a bronze in the bobsleigh final.

Humphries now has the most medals of any Canadian bobsleigh athlete.

“I’m extremely happy right now. Each time I’ve been able to come to the Olympics and compete for Canada is a huge honour but to know that six months ago Phylicia came in…We’ve worked extremely hard to be in this position (and) the competition was stiff,” she said.

The men’s hockey team beat Finland 1-0 to advance to the semifinals.
