Canadians Rising

What is going on in Canada? The Vancouver Canucks are the top seeded team in the NHL with a great chance to win the Stanley Cup, Milos Raonic looks to be the first tennis player from Canada to ever be a serious contender for a Grand Slam title, and now Patrick Chan has become the most dominant figure skater in the World.

Canucks for Cup

The Vancouver Canucks won their very first Presdents Cup trophy in their 40 year existence, and now they are on track to win the Stanley Cup. The Canucks knocked out the defending Stanley Cup champs and they are on pace to go all the way. The whole country is proudly hoping they succeed, as the Canucks are the only Canadian team left in the hunt.


Raonic through the Ranks

Milos Raonic is rising through the ranks of tennis at an alarming rate and Canada is super stoked on tennis all of a sudden. Milos has jumped from #152 to #23 in just a matter of months. His play is so awesome that he’s got top seeded stars like Andy Roddick making death-defying moves just to beat him... like this one:


Chan is Champion

The icing on the cake has got to be Patrick Chan’s World-Record Gold-Medal performance in Moscow at the World Figure Skating Championship. Patrick has told reporters that he wants to dominate the sport like Roger Federer and Tiger Woods, and he put on the show to prove it. Check out his short program that stunned judges giving him World Record points that put him over top of his competition by more than 4 touchdowns.


Canadian Confidence

Canada just recently help the Winter Olympics in Vancouver B.C., and it was the best Olympics ever for Canadians as they came 3rd in the medal rankings. It’s very possible that the inspiration from those games has spilled into the motivation of Canadian athletes and fans. Pride and confidence are big keys to winning and these athletes are proving it.
