FLASH QUOTES:

Meagan DUHAMEL

On returning to the ice after winning gold in the team event:

“We felt better than we anticipated yesterday when we came back to train. Of course, you are on the highest high of your life and all of a sudden you are back down to reality and you need to compete again. So I am really proud how we handled the practice yesterday and how we approached today. I really enjoyed the moment out there on the ice today and at the end of the day that’s what we are going to remember most.”

On being out on the ice as Olympic gold medallists:

“I thought of it yesterday for a split second. I was stroking around the ice and thought, ‘I am an Olympic champion’. Then I went, ‘I want another Olympic medal, get back to work’.”

Eric RADFORD

On whether the challenge of having three skates in less than a week is more mental or physical:

“You know what, it was both. But now that we have this one under our belt, we feel like this is right where we want to be. This was a really good short and we are really ready for the long programme.”

On the short programme:

“It felt really, really good, It felt really in the moment and we maybe could have had a little bit cleaner elements, maybe some higher grades of executions on some things but we are really, really happy.”

On coming into the pairs event as team event gold medallists:

“I think we really enjoyed that moment for what it was and then we hit a reset button because we have work to do here. But I mean it was incredible and unforgettable and if anything it gave us more energy for this competition.”

Ben HEBERT

On setting up the team four years ago:

“This is kind of the age where we thought we’d be peaking as a team… (after) four years together. Certainly there were a lot of teams in Canada that put in just as much work as we did that easily could have been here as well, but we were the ones that got hot at the trials and played a really good week. This is what we were originally built for and our first goal was accomplished by getting here. Obviously we want to play well here and do what we set out to do.”
