Due to a record number of events, and the fact that there are more ways to watch and follow the Olympic Games than ever before, we actually have coverage of a Day minus-1 at the Olympics.
Typically this is usually reserved for training runs that do not count, but three sports kicked off actual Olympic sports today all with high Canadian expectations. Two of those events included Montreal natives, including women’s moguls with three Montreal sisters competing for Olympic glory.
The third event was Team Figure Skating, which Canada is taking part in but no Montreal natives are in that event.
Something we will be doing here at La Metropole Sports is recapping Montreal natives in their quest for Olympic glory. This isn’t a slight to Canada as a team, nor should be taken like one. It’s just a way to get all of the results in one place.
Without further delay, here is how the Montrealers in Sochi performed on Day minus-1
Men’s Downhill & Super Combined Training 1
Erik Guay 7th
Men’s SlopeStyle Heat 1
Sebastien Toutant 3rd (Qualified for Final)
Women’s Moguls Qualifying 1
Chloe Dufour-Lapointe 2nd (Qualified for Final)
Justine Dufour-Lapointe 3rd (Qualified for Final)
Maxime Dufour-Lapointe 8th (Qualified for Final)
Tomorrow, for the Opening Ceremonies there are no actual events scheduled. We will pick this back up over the weekend in addition to our other coverage.
