Both Kaetlyn Osmond and Mike Riddle are from Sherwood Park (though Kaetlyn was born in Newfoundland.) Two Olympic silver medals for a town of 65,000’s not bad at all!
Yuna Kim also had to settle for silver – being upset by Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova. The people of Russia must have been ecstatic over the result after thinking their shot at a women’s Olympic figure skating title was lost with Yulia Lipnitskaya’s fall in the short program. But at the end of the day, despite the losses and upsets, people need to get over it and remember that these are “games.”
