Ah the Olympics! What can I say? It was sixteen days of which I spent every day but three, ok maybe four, at one function or another between Vancouver and Whistler. I was in Whistler for all but one of the sliding events. I was in the mash of the bodies, the excitement of the crowds and the fun and craziness of the celebrations. I spent time with friends from all over the world from the sliding community and with close friends from home. It would be impossible to fill you in on everything so here are some of the highlights:


Saw the very well protected flame.


Went to Heinekin house with a Dutch national friend of mine (Oh those crazy Dutch!)


Experienced tragedy



...& witnessed triumphs and moments in sliding history


Was of course at the track for almost every single sliding event. Was both trackside and in the stands but for the most part this is how I pretty much watched every single event!!


Spent time with the JA community at a dinner for Errol (JA 2010 Olympic Xski athlete) where I met and reconnected with some great folks there.


Was DT Vancouver for the Gold Medal Men’s Hockey game.

...And all the craziness that followed.

...Celebrated only the way Canadians could.

Went to the Paralympic opening ceremonies.


Of course had an amazing time with great friends and lived the spirit that is the games! And wow what a thrill!


...And Oh yeah…built my own wee Inukshuk!


This post would have been forever long if I had tried to show you everything, so for more of my photos from the games go to my photo gallery!
