My 1st Event – Short Track

I just got home from the Pacific Coliseum from watching Short Track Speed Skating with my dad, our first event at the Olympics. I think only one word can explain what I just experienced: AWESOME! The crowd was alive and energetic the entire time. I truly felt a sense of passion and patriotism. Whenever a Canadian was announced and raced, the crowd was deafening. We were fortunate enough to witness a Canadian, Marianne St-Gelais, win a Silver medal this evening in the Ladies’ 500m. I can’t wait for more!

  3. Hi Paul
    After reading your blog we feel as if we had been to the
    Olympics.
    But at this point (now 4:50 Toronto time) Carl, Bob and I
    are nail – biting about tonight’s US vs Canada game.
    Let’s ‘pray’ for the gold.
    Fondest regards to all
    Jean & Bob
