After all the hype, all the lead up, the good, the bad, the ugly... The Olympics have finally arrived!!!
As a former winter athlete I am really excited to watch the Vancouver games and cheer on all the athletes, but I would like to take a moment to send out my best wishes to on e particular group of people who I am on pins and needles with excitement for.
So to Robbie Dixon, Manual Osborne-Paradis, Britt Janyk, Michael Janyk, Watch for great things from these althletes in Alpine Skiing!
Ashleigh McLvor, Julia Murray, and Andra Nedelcu will all be ripping it up in Ski cross!!
(sorry to anyone I missed!)
You have all been racing those hills for years, Just another training run!
Our lives have gone different paths, but I am so proud to have known you all. You are the finest examples of Canadian athletics and I am so happy for you all.
These are all fantastic Vancouver/Whistler athletes who, regardless of how you feel about the Olympics politically, and along with the rest of the Canadian team and all the athletes, deserve your full support and admiration.
So cheer on and support these athletes for representing the absolute best that humans beings can be, and embodying the highest ideals we should all strive for!
All the best to all the athletes in the coming weeks!
