No, really - who's who? The Globe and Mail reports today that, strangely, no Canadian gold medalists from the 2010 Winter Olympics have become the next Mary Lou Retton. Really?

How is that possible?
The Vancouver Games ended four months ago. See if you can match the following names with their gold medal-winning events. No googling or peeking at the cereal boxes in your pantry will be permitted:
