Day 3 of competition at the Winter Olympics in Sochi proved to be a special day for Canada with two memorable gold-medal performances.

Canadian Charles Hamelin defended the gold medal he won at Vancouver by taking first place in the 1,500-meter short track speedskating race. He can compare double golds with freestyle skier Alex Bilodeau, who won gold in the moguls event for the second straight time in the Olympics.

Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany won the super combined alpine skiing event, using a strong run in the slalom to overtake American Julia Mancuso, who finished third. Michel Mulder of the Netherlands edged out two other Dutch skaters to win gold in the 500-meter speedskating sprint.

Finally, Martin Fourcade of France won the 12.5 kilometer pursuit event, giving his country its first gold medal of the Olympics.

Read on to see a breakdown of all the medal events (and how close our predictions were to the actual results!).
