SOCHI, Russia - Canada picked up the medal pace again at the Winter Olympics with two gold and a silver Monday.
The stated goal by Canada's sport leaders is to win the overall medal count in Sochi, Russia, after ranking third in 2010 with 26.
At seven medals, the Canadian team was tied for first with the Netherlands and Norway after three days of competition.
— Alex Bilodeau of Rosemere, Que., defended his Olympic title in men's moguls with teammate Mikael Kingsbury of Deux-Montagnes, Que., taking silver. The moguls team has produced four of Canada's seven medals thus far.
— Short-track speedskater Charles Hamelin of Ste.-Julie, Que., won gold in the 1,500 metres and is a medal threat in three more events.
— The Canadian women's hockey team booked a ticket to the semifinals with a 3-0 win over Finland.
— Alpine skier Marie-Michele Gagnon of Lac Etchemin, Que., dislocated her shoulder in the slalom leg of the super-combined. She says she still wants to race slalom, giant slalom and super-G.
— Long-track speedskaters Gilmore Junio of Calgary and Jamie Gregg of Edmonton finished out of the medals in 10th and 11th in the men's 500 metres.
Canada's grade: A
Ones to watch Tuesday: Montreal's Kaya Turski and Dara Howell of Huntsville, Ont., in women's freestyle slopestyle, Calgary's Alex Gough in women's luge, cross-country skier Alex Harvey of St.-Ferreol-Les-Neiges, Que., and Calgary's Atsuko Tanaka in women's ski jumping.
