Did they win a medal when they held the world championships in 2001?
How bloody unlucky, given that they've had some amazing Olympians in the past.
It was for the entire Olympics.
But at least we hold the record for the only host nation not to win Gold!
I didn't mean to rub salt in the wound; I just hadn't seen your post yet.
On a side note, I had a great time in Edmonton: attending the championships and the concomitant folk music festival, running along the river, etc. I even won second prize in the TAFNOT prediction contest.
