USA rocking Canada's Olympics

It's already Day 10 of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games and Team USA has not disappointed! Although hockey is not America's pastime, it certainly is that of Canada's as the young American hockey squad upset the host country at their own game!

USA rocking Canada's OlympicsAs the American hockey team deflated its rivals with a score of 5 to 3, the only solace for our neighbors to the north is that it was only a preliminary round.

Hockey medal round playoff qualifications begin February 23.

Not to be overlooked from this weekend was Apolo Ohno's bronze medal, earned during the men's short track 1000. It was a close race. If it weren't for a slip in a corner, Apolo's quest would have reached silver or gold contention.

South Korea's Lee Jung-Su and teammate Lee Ho-Suk earned the gold and silver medals, respectively. This is the seventh medal for Apolo who still has more races left this week.

Shani Davis won the silver in the men's 1500m speed skating for the second consecutive Olympics. He's already won two consecutive golds for the 1000m.

Although Chad Hedrick had his sights set on gold, he fell to sixth place in the men's 1500m.

Off the rink and into the slopes, Lindsey Vonn's illustrious Olympics may seem somewhat tarnished as she "let up on the gas pedal" during the Women's Super G as Austrian (and Vonn's BFF!) Adrea Fischbacher and Slovenia's Tina Maze skiied right by her, swooping in on the gold and silver medals, respectively.

After Day 9 of the Olympics, Team USA can proudly boast 23 pieces of hardware: six gold medals, seven silver, and ten bronze. The illustrious team of gold consists of Lindsey Vonn (alpine skiing downhill), Shawn White (snowboarding half pipe), Hannah Kearney (freestyle skiing moguls), Seth Wescott (snowboarding boardercross) Shani Davis (speed skating 1000m) and Evan Lysacek (figure skating).
