Catriona Le May Doan has another gold to add to her collection.

After more than 10,000 votes were logged over the past two weeks, you have picked the Olympian-turned-TV host as the hottest Canadian broadcaster of the 2012 Summer Games.

TSN's Jennifer Hedger held an iron grip on the gold for the first several days, but Le May Doan, who already has two speed-skating golds from the 1998 and 2002 Olympics, seized the lead at the midway point and didn't let go.

She finished with 29.5% of the vote. Hedger takes the silver with 26.7%.

Grabbing the bronze was Monika Platek, who updated CTV viewers on social-media happenings throughout the Games. She had 8.9% of the votes.

Rounding out the field were Kara Lang, Joanne Malar, Annie Pelletier, James Duthie and Kate Beirness.

Write-in candidates included Jay Onrait, Evanka Osmak, "track/field commentator who uses 'literally' copiously and always incorrectly," the Queen, "yer momma" and "my mom."
