PINEROLO, Italy – Here's the Shot of the Day, not from the ice... but through a camera lens.
This photo of Canadian second Glenys Bakker was taken just five minutes before her march onto the carpet, and then the ice, for the Olympic women's semi-final.
Bakker was sitting in a stairwell, alone with her thoughts before the big game.
It's tough to come back from such disappointment to challenge for bronze, Olympic or otherwise. Kelley Law and her Vancouver foursome did it for Canada four years ago in Salt Lake City, Utah, and now it's up to the Calgarians, led by Bakker's skip Shannon Kleibrink, here in Italy.
Game time 1:00pm (or is it 1:30?) local time... early AM in North America.
