  1. Thanks for the upload here. I put it in my favorites section of my YouTube page. Keep it up. I hope to see more highlights from the Greek portion of the Vancouver 2010 torch relay.
  2. Here's how the Greek route of the Vancouver 2010 torch run looks like. Click here for it. Yesterday, it went to the following locales: Pyrgos, Ancient Ilida, Tripotama, and Kalavryta. Today, it went to the following locales: Kalavryta, Patras, Mesollogi (Statue of Kostis Palamas), Mesollogi, Agrinio, and Karpenisi.
  3. Can't wait to watch it live on the official Olympic Games website.
  4. Boy, the BBC plastered the Delhi preparation for next year's Commonwealth Games with concerns. It is going to get interesting, if the venues will be done on time.
  5. I hope that the lighting ceremony will be shown live to Canadians on that day.
  6. I like the way the medals are shaped. At least, the design of it for the Winter Olympics are not as restrictive as the summer counterpart.
  7. Spain to have the most extensive high speed train system in the world? Link: BBC: Trains In Spain Signal The Future P.S. Quote from article: "Next year, the government boasts, Spain will overtake Japan and France to become the world leader, measured in kilometres of high speed line."
  8. Looks like a "Bread Not Circuses" clone is trying to spoil the party for Toronto again.
  9. Well, tomorrow is when the 2009 World Wheelchair Curling Championships starts to test the venue. Link: World Wheelchair Curling Championships
  10. The next Vancouver 2010 test event will be for the curling venue TWICE. First, it will be the World Wheelchair Curling Championships from February 21st to 28th. The second one will be the World Junior Curling Championships from March 5th to 15th.
  11. So, how did you guys like the Olympic torch design for Vancouver 2010? Link: IOC: VANCOUVER 2010 – Olympic Torch Design Unveiled
  12. The IOC was busy putting out articles about the 1 year to go event at Vancouver. Link 1: IOC: VANCOUVER 2010 – Busy Times In Vancouver Link 2: IOC: Sport Full on One Year Out Link 3: IOC: VANCOUVER 2010 – Countdown to 2010 By the way, Great Britain (host of the 2012 Olympic Games at London), Russia (host of the 2014 Winter Olympics at Sochi), the USA (as Canada's neighbor and host of the most Winter Olympics so far with FOUR) and Canada (obviously with Vancouver 2010) got their official invitations at that party in the Richmond Oval.
  13. On CBC, some Canadians have already got their torch and uniform. It will be an exciting time for them.
  14. Well, Patrick Chan won the men's competition at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships. As for other news: Link 1: CBC: Lueders Misses Medal Podium at 4-man Bobsleigh World Cup Link 2: CBC: Heil, Bilodeau Grab Moguls Gold
  15. Link 1: CBC: Rochette Finishes 2nd at Four Continents Link 2: CBC: Humphries 2nd, Lueders 3rd at Bobsleigh World Cup Link 3: CBC: Virtue, Moir Settle for Silver at Four Continents Link 4: CBC: Canada's Omischl, Ski Cross Team Triumphant Link 5: Canada's Montgomery Wins Skeleton Gold Looks good for Canada in the Vancouver 2010 test events of the venues at this point.
  16. All the splendor NBC can produce so far, just before the one year countdown for Vancouver 2010 begins next Thursday. Link: YouTube: Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 Note: The Vancouver segment starts at the 1:20 time point in the video itself.
  17. First, it looks like the German team likes the Whistler bobsleigh/luge/skeleton track. Link: CBC: Frustration for Hollingsworth, Kelly in Skeleton However, the Canadian figure skating seems to be doing well, in preparation for both Los Angeles and Vancouver 2010. Link 1: CBC: Virtue, Moir close in on Four Continents Title Link 2: CBC: Canada dominating Four Continents
  18. Next week will be a busy one for Vancouver and Whistler, in terms of test events. At Vancouver, the 2009 ISU Four Continents figure skating event comes to town. Meanwhile, the bobsleigh and skeleton World Cup event will be held at Whistler. Both of them start on February 2nd.
  19. Now that Harper seems to have escaped being defeated by the coalition because of the federal budget, it will be interesting on how many heads of state would want to go to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Don't forget that the G8 Summit in Ontario later that year could have more heads of state and dignitaries attending it. So, a bigger question comes to mind: will it be Vancouver 2010 or Huntsville, Ontario, that they would come in bigger numbers?
  20. What? CBC is not selling a DVD set about anything Beijing 2008?? I was told otherwise, but I didn't have time to really check the CBC on-line store for it. I know that CCTV or whatever Chinese broadcaster has already got the whole opening ceremony (at least) on DVD.
  21. Boy, it looks like some people do not understand the strict rules BOCOG and related entities are saying about uploading Beijing 2008 Olympic Games opening ceremony clips at YouTube. It is a battle between them and the uploaders, which the clips keep on getting deleted AT THIS TIME! Here is an example I found of the beginning: Beijing 2008 Opening Ceremony Clip Example
  22. The first test event for Vancouver 2010 has finished at the Pacific Coliseum. Link: CBC: Canada earns 8 medals at short-track World Cup
  23. The local news broadcast showed it. I wanted to see it, but I had to go to work. Anyway, no protests over its arrival.
  24. You mean like this YouTube clip I uploaded: "O Canada" From Lillehammer 1994.
