  2. For the London Games, when I received my tickets from Cosport, there was one missing (gymnastic). They know about it and wrote me a letter saying that I will have to pass to their office for picking it. It was a huge problem for me since the missing ticket was for 15h00 the same day I arrived. My plane landed around 8h00. I had to grab the ticket, and then check-in with my lugagge at my hotel before going to the event. There was huge distance between each points but I was able to make it

  6. Just came back from Day 3 of the Boxing Olympic Qualification for canadian team held in Montreal. I had the chance to talk a lot with the coachs and trainers about our chance of medals for Rio Unanimous about the fact that only one man have chance to qualify for the games (in the 91 kg category) but with absolutelly no chance of medals. For women, different story with a hope of medal in the 48kg category with Mandy Bujold, depending if she's lucky with the draw In the 75kg category, Ariane Fortin (ranked #3 in the world) is also a solid containder for medal (again if she's lucky witth the

  17. Long time ago (it's maybe still like that), the official flag used at the Opening Ceremony came in three copy and was kept in three differents safe locations in case of fire, robbery, damage, etc... Those three places were always the sames : at the Organizing Committee, at the Town Hall and at the Official Broadcaster. I had the chance few years ago to meet the guy in charge of the broadcasting for the 1976 Games in Montreal (one of the big boss at that time for CBC). He's the one who kept the flag after the Games When he heard about my passion for Olympic he decided to gave it to me. I ha
