Day 15 of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games was another big one for Canada. Our short track speed-skaters collected more medals, our womens curling team got silver, and the men’s hockey team beat Slovakia to move onto the gold medal game on Sunday.
As for my personal experience yesterday, it was just a regular day at the media centre. I walked through security, got wanded, told the guard I would “miss this”, he thought I was strange, and I carried on. It’s true though, the security screenings (I go through about 2-6 a day) are a part of my daily routine during the Olympics.
Aside from the peculiar highlight, I also caught a press conference with members of the womens hockey team that won gold the night before. I also enjoyed going through Nardwuar’s content to date, the iconic music industry reporter (and musician) has been covering all things Vancouver 2010 in his own way.
Today several Olympians will be out and about in public.

Our friend Henry lives in Chile and although his home base is several hundred kilometers from last night’s earthquake, I believe it was impacted. We’re still trying to reach him but with reports of the power being out and communications either down or stretched, it may take a while. Here’s hoping Henry can reach us soon to let us know he’s okay.
