If you’ve been with us for the past 15 hours and are still reading, you are one of the dedicated. Seriously.

The refs agree she was not quite asleep, so she is still in, but with a slight penalty for the drooling. Canada may not be taking home the gold in this event, but she is still in the running for bronze at the moment. … )
