And he finishes the 3000m race in 5th.
Hey! He looks pretty good with a gold medal around his neck, eh?

Overall, this was a pretty good competition for Jonathan.  In the 1000m, he was barely eliminated in the semi-finals by a mere 14/100ths of a second!  In the 500m, he made the finals, placing 5th and gaining 5 points, and he placed high enough overall to make the 3000, in which he also placed 5th.  Oh.  And did I mention the relay?  See the picture to the right, and the one below?  GOLD!  (Well, this IS Team Canada we're talking about, here!)  So going home with a Bronze and a Gold?  Well done!!
