Winning the gold medal against Japan 2-1 must feel great for the american girls. They had lost against the japanese team in the world cup finals last summer and had revenge in their minds. But how will the tainted win against Canada weight on the Americans minds? Not much is my guess. Those kind of issues happen in soccer and I don’t think it will tarnish the feeling of winning gold at the Olympics. Canada is certainly not happy hearing that the Americans had won earlier today after feeling as they were cheated off the finals. Losing in the fashion that Canada did against the americans even without the alleged bad officiating is reason enough to be pissed off. For the american team winning the gold against the team that eliminated their hopes of a world title must be pure joy. Congratulations to the girls, as they’ve cemented their name in Olympic history.
