As the sixth day of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games comes to a close I thought it would be best to publish my Olympic Daily tonight. I’ll be heading to Whistler first thing in the morning on the Alberta Train which means my day will be starting at 4:30am.
Today’s schedule was once again jam-packed but it included a few press conferences including one to celebrate Alberta Day and another for Canada’s latest gold medal winner, MaÃ«lle Ricker.
After my time at the Media Centre I met up with Keira to explore several more pavilions around town. First stop was Alberta House followed by a peek into Haida Gwaii House and then to LiveCity Downtown for the Canada Pavilion.
I rounded out the day by meeting up with some family members to check out the Olympic cauldron. As the sun set, casting a pink glow over the snow-capped mountains, the flickering flame was indeed a beautiful sight.
