The Winter Olympics are a special event and the Vancouver Games will long be remembered as the best run Winter Olympics ever. There were tears of joy as well as tears of heartbreak as athletes from all over the world came together in a celebration of sport. Canada was also on show and many people now have a better understanding of the wonderful nation Canada is.
14 gold medals was the final tally for the Canadians and not even the most patriotic of Maple Leaf chest beaters could have predicted such a tally. 888sport was swamped by Canadians taking advantage of their internet betting service and it wasn’t just the athletes talking home the ‘gold’.
For those of you who got in early and backed our Hockey Team you could have got $1.91 about them before the start of the games. After they lost to the Americans in the early rounds the good price still remained for those smart enough to jump on. Even though they got off to a shaky start they always appeared to be in control. That is not to say that every Canadian heart skipped a beat when Team USA stuck that puck into the net a few seconds before full time. Overtime only added to the drama and when that magical moment came and gold was ours there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
We now have to get back to normal and return to our lives. The one thing that will stay the same is 888sport. They will still be offering every Canadian a wide range of betting options on all their favourite sports 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in the comfort of their own homes.
