Silver win brings medal count to four

Canada has won a silver medal - its second silver of the Games - in the team figure skating event.

This is the first year for the team event, which saw Russia come out on top.

The win comes on the heels of some stellar performances by Canadian athletes.

Taking the place Patrick Chan, 23-year-old Kevin Reynolds finished second in the men's free skate, successfully landing three quad jumps.

His performance gave Canada an insurmountable lead over the Americans with two skates to go.    

It was a solid performance for Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond in the women's free skate but a fall early in her program left her in fifth place.

The host country clinched its first gold medal of the Games with an amazing performance by 15-year-old Yulia Lipnitskaya.

In the event-closing ice dance free skate, Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir finished second to American rivals Meryl Davis and Charlie White.    

The U.S. took home the bronze.

Canada has four medals so far - one gold, two silvers and one bronze.
