Canada is dominating the podium this year, and day four has propelled the medal count to 10, sitting in third behind Norway (11) and the Netherlands (10, four golds).

On top of this medal tier, the team is making history with several event debuts on the podium.

Calgary’s Alex Gough pulled off the bronze in luge, making it Canada’s first luge medal in the history of the Olympics.

Sherbrooke, Quebec’s Kim Boutin finished fourth in the speed skating short track, but was moved up to bronze after South Korea’s Minjeong Choi was disqualified.

Winnipeg’s Kaitlyn Lawes and Ottawa’s John Morris had a whirlwind of a week in mixed doubles curling: after an opening loss earlier in the week, the pair came back strong to beat out Swiss six-time world champions Jenny Perret and Martin Rios. They ended up winning Canada’s first ever mixed doubles gold medal in curling!

All of these incredible victories were accomplished despite the fact that this team was formed less than two months ago – it was just meant to be!

I don’t know about you, but we’re feeling inspired!
