Vancouver 2010: What an amazing Winter Olympics!
I'm not really into sports, so I'm kind of surprised by how into the Olympics I got over the last two weeks. Of course, being on home turf just 4 hours away helps a lot! :-)
Prior to this Olympics, Canada hadn't won a single gold medal on home soil. Now, two weeks later with 14 gold medals, we've smashed all sorts of records:
* Canada has the most number of gold medals of any winter Olympics.
* We also have the most number of gold medals on home turf of any winter Olympics.
* We have the most gold medals of the XXI Winter Olympics, which means that according to the IOC, Canada won the 2010 Winter Olympic games!
Jenny and I spent a few days in Vancouver last week soaking up the atmosphere. Although we didn't attend any actual events, the buzz there was incredible!
I know this might sound kinda corny, but I have never been more proud to be a Canadian. Go Canada Go!
