The 2010 Winter Olympics are winding down, but the biggest party is yet to come. The Closing Ceremony is set to be the climax of the Winter Games, as Canada celebrates the achievements of the world’s most talented athletes.

Although officials and participants keep a tight lid on the details of the show, we do know that it will include some of Canada’s biggest entertainers. Closing Ceremony executive producer, David Atkins, wouldn’t name names, but did say, “It’s going to be a very contrasting night to the opening ceremony… a celebration of Canadian humor, talent, and innovation.” Atkins also produced the 2000 Closing Ceremony in Sydney, Australia, which featured an array of well-known entertainers.

Highlights of the Torch Relay, Linden and Nash

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

Last week, caught up with Trevor Linden and Steve Nash on the road for the Olympic torch relay.crowd

As we exited the sky-train at 49th Street, crowds of people began to emerge. Every sidewalk from 49th to Main and over to Oak Street was packed with crowds five people deep. By the time we reached what would be the starting place for Linden, it was a sea of red flags and shirts. Adults, children, and families waited excitedly, hoping to catch a glimpse of the torch. It was nice to see such large numbers turn out in support.

When Trevor Linden began his relay, the crowd went wild. Steve Nash caused a similar response. Children and adults alike screamed out in joy. The two were separated by about twelve blocks. Trying to reach both relays was challenging, but well worth it. I think I’m one in many who will always remember the rush of running along side two of Canada’s greatest athletes.
