Once again it is time to focus on letter of the week for ABC Wednesday. For me this week, G can only be Gold Medal!
The Olympics in Vancouver, on Canadian soil, was the most golden for Canada in a winter Olympics and for a host nation! 14 gold medals! Canadians all across Canada were glued to Tvs throughout the 17 days - I know I was. Many times I was close to tears - for the athlete's triumph over adversity (think Joannie Rochette's loss of her Mom), touching moments (Alex Bilodeau and his brother) or the playing of the National anthem.
I am proud to be Canadian and this Olympics really galvanized Canadians to show their pride - in uncharacteristic ways! I hope we can maintain it!
There were so many golden moments:
Alex Bilodeau with the gold for Men's Moguls.
Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir (Gold in Ice Dance)
Sidney Crosby's overtime goal to win gold for Canada's hockey team.
There were so many special moments. Thank you Vancouver!
