According to CBC Sports, Team Canada has won its fourth medal of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Sunday.

The Canadian team of Patrick Chan of Ottawa, Ontario, Kevin Reynolds of Vancouver, British Columbia, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of London, Ontario, Dylan Moscovitch of Toronto, Ontario, Kirsten Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ontario, Kaetyln Osmond of Marystown, Newfoundland, Meagan Duhamel of Lively, Ontario and Eric Radford of Balmertown, Ontario all made significant contributions for Canada.

The Canadian decision to go with Reynolds over Chan instead of Andrew Poje and Kaitlyn Weaver of Waterloo, Ontario over Virtue and Moir was an interesting one. However the decision made by Canada paid off as Reynolds skated outstanding.

Reynolds, who was competing in his first international long program of the season because of a skate issue earlier on in the year, successfully executed three quads including a quadruple Salchow. Even though he double footed a triple axel, Reynolds performed an excellent combination.

Russia won the gold medal with 75 points followed by Canada at 65 points and the United States at 60 points.
