VANCOUVER – A record 14 golds. And the biggest one of all. The win secured Canada's record as the nation with the most gold medals ever during an Olympic Games.

Canada today edged the United States 3-2 in overtime on a Sidney Crosby shot in overtime in the gold medal men’s hockey game, sending an entire nation into a huge celebration.

The win gave Canada a record 14 gold medals; double the previous high by a Canadian winter Olympic team (seven in Turin in 2006 and also in Salt Lake City in 2002) and the most-ever by any country at a single Winter Olympics.

Canada finished with 26 medals overall; 14 gold, seven silver and five bronze. That’s two more than the previous high of 24, collected in Turin four years ago.

Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games closing ceremony was fantastic !!!!!
