Our Olympic Moments

Friday, February 12, 2010: A simply amazing day in the city of Vancouver. It was the final day of the 106 day Olympic Torch Run, ending inside B.C. Place Stadium with the opening ceremonies. Thousands came out to see the torch. Here are some of my pictures:

We were privileged to see the Canadian, Russian, Japanese, and Danish curling teams practicing here in New Westminster, an amazing experience. On the day these pictures were taken it was the Canadian Mens Team, the Japanese Men and Woman teams, and the Russian Men and Woman teams all practicing at the same time.

Here is a Russian Men’s Curler

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the Family of Georgian Luger Nordar Kumaritashvili who tragically lost his life during a training run on the track at the Whistler Sliding Centre.
