The following was written for by my 9 year old niece, Alexis. She interviewed her brothers to put together this post.

The Olympics. Week one. A kid’s perspective

To the kids in Vancouver and Surrey, the Olympics are very exciting because they are in Vancouver. They think the mascots are cute, the torch is very cool and they’re a lot of fun. Kids in Canada think we will win the Olympics because we have a lot of people who cheer for the Olympics. Some of the kids think the Olympic rings are very cool, the rings are a symbol of the Countries coming together in peace.

The kids like Hockey, Skiing and Speed skating the best. Snowboarding half pipe is also very popular. We also love the mascots, the most popular is Miga, then Mukmuk, Sumi and Quatchi. We like to watch the Olympic games. We have 3 gold medals and we can get more!

    Sounds like you’re having a lot of fun. I can’t believe Quatchi is the least favourite mascot though. He’s so cute and cuddly!

    So true. I have kids and know that’s exactly how they see it. And I agree with the mascot popularity rank. Why didn’t they make Muk Muk a mascot instead of relegating him to sidekick status! He’s so darn cute plus he’s REAL and not some made up character.

    My compliments to Alexis. It certainly adds a new slant to the events. Would love to have eavesdrop on the interviewing sessions.
