2010 Winter Olympic Games: Day 7 Recap

Wanna get up to date on all the highlights from the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, taking place in Vancouver, BC, Canada? Just leave it to Kidzworld! Here's a recap of the events that took place on Thursday, February 18, 2010.

Evan Lysacek


American figure skater Evan Lysacek took home the Gold Medal in the Men's Figure Skating Free Skate on Thursday night, upsetting defending champion Evgeni Plushenko of Russia, who had come out of retirement just to defend his medal. But Evan dashed Evgeni’s dreams of two Olympic Gold Medals after he performed his near-perfect skate, capped off with a beautiful double axle. This Gold Medal makes Evan the first American man to score first place in figure skating since 1988.


Women’s Half Pipe Snowboarding


Team USA had some huge success on the Women’s Half Pipe today, with Hannah Teter winning silver and Kelly Clark taking the bronze. But the real story was Australia's Torah Bright, who came back strong after falling on her first run in the finals to win the Gold Medal.


Hockey Country?


There’s no question that Team Canada is the favorite to win the Gold Medal in Men’s Ice Hockey at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. Not only is the team stacked with NHL Players, but the Games are taking place in the very country that claims to be Hockey Nation - Canada. Trust us when we say, it will be a major upset if a) Canada doesn’t make it to the Gold Medal Game and b> doesn’t win the top prize in the end.


However, the guys on Team Canada Hockey almost let a whole country down today when they barely won their game against the much lower-ranked Swiss team. In fact, the game was tied 2-2 at the end of three periods and had to go to a shootout. With their hearts in their throats, the mostly Canadian crowd watched as goal after goal was blocked by the two teams’ NHL goalies. And then … Sidney Crosby for Team Canada dumped the puck into Switzerland’s net! But, while plenty of Canadians are celebrating this near-loss – we mean, win – plenty of others are hoping the game will serve as a major reality check for the Canadians, who need to get it together if they don’t want to disappoint millions of Canadian hockey fans.

    Baseball. It sucks that girls aren't allowed to play baseball. They instead have to play SOFTBALL! Ugh! What the hell?! It's just sexist! At least imho. There are only small differences between the two, so WHY the hell should girls be prevented from playing baseball?!!
