RATE IT! Canada's Adam Van Koeverden

HURRAH!! Congratulations to Canadian kayaker, Adam Van Koeverden who paddled to the silver medal today at the Beijing Olympics.

Adam was the favourite to win the 1,000 m event yesterday but the unthinkable happened when he missed the medals and came in near the back of the pack. Not one to let a disappointment get the best of him, Adam came back and just missed the gold in the K-1 500 m today and won the silver. Interviewed on CBC, Adam dismissed the idea of a flag-bearer curse and was gracious and happy to be the silver medalist. We grow 'em good here in Canada! Congrats, Adam!!  (photo:
