Olympics 2012: A Fatigued Canadian Women's Football Team Defeats France to Win Bronze

The City of Coventry Stadium was fraught with nervous energy as the Canadian and French football teams arrived to fight for the Olympic bronze medal today. French coach Bruno Bini has said that France didn't come to London for "a chocolate medal," but clearly, neither did the Canucks. Canada played a knock-down, drag-out, brilliant semifinal game against the United States on Monday, losing by a point in double overtime. (I may bleed red, white and blue, but Canada's Christine Sinclair is my new number one girl crush after that crazy hat trick. Swoon!)
