Olympic History


Just watching the final days of the Olympics in Torino and trying to decide whether or not I want to watch the closing ceremonies. I think I might skip it and remember these games as the most successful Canadian showing ever.

Putting aside the failure of the men’s hockey team to look anything like a world class squad, Canadian athletes – especially the women – have given us all cause to feel tremendously proud. Cindy Klassen’s 5 medal domination of the speedskating venue is a feat that will stand large in our memories and the women’s hockey team gave us all reason to cheer.

In 4 years the world will gather in Vancouver and the promise of a greater medal haul cannot be underestimated.

3 cheers Canada!!
