review by . February 23, 2010
Growing up, I was enthralled by the nationalism, the honor, and the athleticism that the Summer Olympics represented.  The Winter Olympics failed to evoke any of the feelings from my childhood.  What's wrong with the Winter Olympics?  Let me count the ways...      The Events      THE GRAVITY EVENTS: Several of the events of the Winter Olympics rely heavily on gravity.  Bobsledding, luge, skeleton, etc.  Due to basic physics, a …

China's first Gold
I've hardly watched the Winter Olympics as most of the places I've lived in hardly broadcast it (unless it's on Sports on Cable TV but that's one channel I don't subscribed to). This year though, I'm living in Shenzhen and the China's state tv station CCTV-5 (a sports channel) has been telecasting the various competitive programs throughout the day and it's hard to miss it!      Originally, I had titled this review "China's first Gold". …

Canada Wins Gold in Men's Hockey
I'll be the first to tell you I'm not a Hockey fan. This is because it's not a hugely played sport in the US and I wasn't brought up with it. I was brought up watching football. Nevertheless, the Finals of the Men's Hockey of the US vs Canada was something I was NOT going to miss. Given that the US was able to beat Canada(with a score of 5-3) early on in the tournament added to the excitement of this game.      Canada got a quick jump on the US scoring two unanswered …

Wiki

The 2010 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XXI Olympic Winter Games or the 21st Winter Olympics, will be held on February 12–28, 2010, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with some events held in the resort town of Whistler nearby. Both the Olympic andParalympic Games are being organized by the Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC).

The 2010 Winter Olympics will be the third Olympics hosted by Canada, and the first by the province of British Columbia. Previously, Canada was home to the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal and the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. These will also be the first games to be held in a National Hockey League market since the league allowed its players to participate, starting at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.

Following Olympic tradition, then Vancouver mayor Sam Sullivan received the Olympic flag during the closing ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. The flag was raised on February 28, 2006, in a special ceremony, and will be on display at Vancouver City Hall until the Olympic opening ceremony. The event will be officially opened by Governor General Michaëlle Jean.
