And there’s more!

2) Canada’s women started strong in the opening heats of the 500m short track speed skating. 3 time Olympic silver medallist Marianne St-Gelais  blazed to victory in her heat; Kim Boutin also qualified for the next round. The quarter-finals get under way on Tuesday.

Meanwhile in Curling…

3) In the Canadian mixed doubles John Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes have clinched a semifinal berth. Morris and Lawes have won 5 straight after opening competition with a loss to Norway.

And the not so….

5)  Canadian speed skaters Ivanie Blondin and Isabelle Weidemann finished sixth and seventh, respectively, in the women’s 3,000m.
