The American athletes competing at the Vancouver Winter Games are putting on an amazing show of focus, toughness and pure determination for the world to admire.

One can say any number of things about the U.S.A., but one can not say that American athletes aren't clutch performers at the highest level of competition in whatever sport, amateur and professional.

Indeed, the Red, White and Blue parade to the podium to collect 10 bronze, 7 silver, and 6 gold medals has thus far been truly impressive.

But, of course, the only medal count that really counts is the Gold Count.

Entering a favourable second week of events, Canada is poised to win multiple gold medals and can finish these games at the top of the podium.

We will, after all is said and done, Own The Damn Podium.

Go Canada Go!
