Canada opened its Vancouver Games account with an 18-0 thumping of Slovakia on Saturday. On Sunday, questions about the lopsided score were raised at the daily IOC-VANOC joint briefing.
IOC director of communications Mark Adams said the issue was not raised between the two organizations
“Clearly if you’re on the losing side of a hiding, it’s never much fun,’’ said the Briton, who watched the game. “But I’m sure they had a great experience and I’m sure they’re thankful to be Olympians.
“You know these things happen in all sports, at all levels. They’re a good team but clearly yesterday Canada were the better team - by a long way.’‘
Asked about a possible mercy rule, Adams said: “It’s an interesting idea. I’m not sure it would have been good last night. I enjoyed watching the game.’‘
