It’s over. After more than two weeks of sporting greatness, the Sochi Olympics that had many of us glued to our computers, tablets and televisions have come to a close. For Canada, it has been one of the greatest games ever.
Take a look at our top seven (let’s face it – it’s tough to narrow down to five) favourite moments from The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. Share your favourite moments with us by tweeting @faulhabercomm!
Canada’s First Gold Medal
What could be better than Canada’s first gold medal? A gold and silver by this sister act. Definitely a picture for the books!

It’s not just about winning a medal for yourself, but winning it for your biggest supporters. One of the most heartwarming moments was when Alexandre Bilodeau dedicated his gold medal to his brother.

Tessa Moir and Scott Virtue charmed us with their silver medal performance, but the duo will always be gold in our hearts.

The Canadian women’s hockey team had us on the edge of our seats with their stunning comeback against the U.S. in the gold medal game.
And we can’t forget about the game that had Canadian hockey fans crowding the bars at 7 a.m. to cheer the team to a gold medal win.
Like they say, we are winter. GO CANADA GO!
