Canadian Prime Minister has today revealed that he has entered into a unique bet with  US President Barack Obama over the Olympic  hockey games between the two countries.

On twitter Prime Minister, Stephen Harper said:

"I'm betting @barackobama one case of Canadian beer per hockey game this week. #teamusa is good, but #WeAreWinter. #GoCanadaGo @WhiteHouse"

There has been no word yet from Obama as to whether he has accepted the bet but the tweet has been re-tweeted over 1,000 times. 

The USA and Canada will meet in the final of the Women's hockey tournament later today which will be followed by the Men's representatives from the two nations in the semi finals tomorrow.

At the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, Canada defeated the United States in both the Womens' and Mens' final to claim gold so the Americans will be out for revenge.

President Obama is known to be a keen sports fan and, as is tradition, invites the winner of every major national championship to the White House.
