Land of ICE and Snow
So I admit that when I watch the Summer Olympics, I tend to cheer for the USA, the Winter Olympics, Canada. It's called playing the odds, to a degree, isn't it? At any rate, between the Canadian women winning hockey gold and Cindy Klassen and Kristina Groves winning gold and silver, respectively, in the 1500m speedskating, I think it's fair to say Canada maintains a certain level of ice ownership.
I do think an awesome combination would be a Dutch-Canadian who grew up in Ottawa, skating those canals. Had a babysitter when I was a kid, born to Dutch parents, who used to take us skating and when I expressed admiration for her abilities, said with a smile, "Heather, I'm Dutch...we can skate before we can walk". Indeed.
But...check out those Canadian women. They rock the ice. Sweet.
