Hoser Heroes: Canada's best on Day 11

Each night, Fourth-Place Medal will pick a gold, silver, and bronze medal from among Canada's competitors.

Canuck gold: Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir (gold, ice dancing). That will be some parade through London, Ontario, with Canada's new sweethearts and speedskating's Christine Nesbitt.

Canuck silver: Devon Kershaw and Alex Harvey (fourth, cross-country men's team sprint). It was another record finish for the Canadian cross-country team, which The Globe & Mail's Michael Grange noted is "quietly having a remarkable Olympics."

Teammate George Grey's blog post is a should-read:

Today was a very emotional day for me. I would describe my emotions as joyous and fulfilling. I was not chosen to start the sprint relay but that did not dishearten me. I knew that Alex and Devon would be as strong as any combination of us. From the sidelines I felt like I was racing with Devon and Alex urging them along. For nearly an hour I watched with tears of pride, joy, excitement, hard work, friendship, and more brimming in my eyes.

Canuck bronze: Cheryl Bernard (skip, women's curling). Curled 93 percent to beat Sweden's Anette Norberg, 6-2, as her rink clinched a playoff spot and did its part to make curling trendy.
