(End edition)

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games is over. What an amazing 17 days! Canada came in 3rd in overall medal count of 26 (14 GOLD, 7 SILVER and 5 BRONZE), the most ever from a host country. I was quite amazed at the number of GOLD medals Canada won, considering that we used to get lots of BRONZE and some SILVER but the GOLD medals were always very little. So, this was quite an amazing Olympics, plus to cap it all off, our Mens Hockey Team beat the USA (a great team nonetheless) to win the GOLD medal in overtime! I listened to it on my Nokia E71′s radio since I was inside the Royal Canadian Mint pavilion when it happened. Amazing!

Did you watch the Olympics on TV? Or were you one of those who got the opportunity to visit Vancouver and actually experience the excitement, the crowds, the friendly and charged atmosphere? I was lucky to visit Vancouver for a few days and got to experience this magical time. Although one of the things you’ll experience there (if you’re going into any of the venues) is the line line ups (several hours long), it is well worth it! There are many different pavilions from all the Canadian provinces and territories, and various countries, plus media ones like the Coca-Cola, Samsung, Panasonic, Acer and others. Plus, there’s the Zip-Line from Ziptrek, which is a quick 22 second cable ride that runs over Robson Square by yourself strapped to a harness. That was an amazing ride! You’re strapped to a harness and zip down this cable from up top to the other side. It looks scary from up there but once you take that step off, it’s an amazing and not scary ride at all! Very fun!

Considering all the different venues available, and the line ups, it’s practically impossible to visit all or most of them in a few days so I wasn’t all that disappointed to only visit a few. I went to LiveCity downtown, the Bell Ice Cube (and witness Joanne Rochette’s bronze medal win), LiveCity Yaletown, Richmond O-Zone (Holland Heineken House is quite nice as was Richmond Hall showcasing the speed skating displays and medals), Zip-line over Robson Square, the Olympic Cauldron, Royal Canadian Mint pavilion (I got to hold the medal!) and others.

One of the most memorable moments of just being there in Vancouver during the Olympic Games was the friendships formed with the people I’ve met during the multi-hour line ups at various events and venues. I’ve met people from within the Vancouver area, Victoria, the USA and other places. And everyone is so nice to chat with as we talk about various things we’ve done during the Olympics and about ourselves and our family. I think if we took away all the other things we’ve bought, saw, etc, making friends from complete strangers is one of those things that I will cherish. Everyone was so nice and friendly.

Other things that I will personally enjoy remembering are all the crowds of flag waving patriotic Canadians out on the streets. There are people wearing Olympic gear ranging from Hockey Canada jerseys of this year and previous, Canadian Olympic jackets, t-shirts, and just everything with the word Canada on it like scarfs, hats, mittens. Only in Vancouver and during the Olympics did I see so many people draping the Canadian flag over themselves and wearing it as a cape. There are pin traders everywhere. You have a pin, you can trade it with many others along the streets. After Canada won the mens semi-final hockey game against Slovakia, the entire downtown went nuts! People were cheering, yelling, hollering, singing the Canadian anthem, honking horns, ringing cowbells (it’s an Olympic thing). You have to be there to see and witness this madness. And when Sidney Crosby scored the winning goal in overtime, I jumped up in joy and cheered (I was in the Royal Canadian Mint pavillion at the time after waiting 5 hrs in line) after hearing it on my Nokia E71′s radio. The whole place and the whole city of Vancouver went nuts! Seriously, this is Canada at its most patriotic and proud moment! Hockey is “our” game and winning the GOLD medal was what we expected and cherished most of all.
