An Amazing Day XC!

Team Canada has really put in a remarkable effort today.....blazing a trail for their home country which hasn't been achieved in multiple decades.  For a team that wasn't even concentrating on medal contention, this crew came here just hoping to achieve personal best and has certainly topped that.  Little could they imagine that they would be sitting in 3rd place at the end of the day!!

Here's the current overall results;

Team Results: 
1. Great Britain 139.4
2. USA 143.3
3. Canada 147.5
4. New Zealand 150.8
5. Germany 192.7

I spoke briefly with Gamal, Hawley's proud husband and team supporter.  He reported that they were busy back at the barn, doing the night feed, going through the vet check and consulting with their coach.  The whole team is graciously optimistics about tomorrow & just wants to go out & do there best once again.  Regardless of whether they stay in medal contention, I'm sure that they will make their home country proud & there will be reason to celebrate!
