Canada is finally coming into its own with the Gold Medals! Gold Medal #13! The Canadian men's long-track speed skating team pursuit - brought home the gold medal and the fifth medal in long-track speed skating in these 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
Canadia's skaters Mathieu Giroux, Lucas Makowsky, and Denny Morrison established back-to-back Olympic records in eliminating Italy and Norway on their way to the Finals between Canada and the U.S. once again...in tightly aligned teams of three, drafting one another like cyclists - brought this last race to a spectacular finish!
Canada's Men's pursuit team introduced a new technique to the sport when the second and third skaters gently tapped the member in front of him on the butt while on straightaways, helping the often tired leader maintain his speed with the boost from behind. Apparently Coach Marcel Lacroix has been working on the concept for three years and only allowed Morrison of Fort St. John, B.C., Lucas Makowsky of Regina and Mathieu Giroux of Montreal to pull it out during the Winter Games so other teams wouldn't have time to copy it.

Kudo's to the U.S.'s Morrison for skating with a bad hip - and obviously in some pain AND for winning his fifth Olympic Medal tieing Eric Hieden!
The Netherlands took the Bronze!
