“Remember when the Olympics were here?” John and I ask each other this nostalgic question every now and then. It was an amazing time for us; covering the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, riding along with the torch relay, attending press conferences, ziplining over Robson Street, and cheering our hearts out for every Canadian athlete and medallist.
With the Sochi 2014 Winter Games just around the corner it really makes Vancouver 2010 seem so far away but some of the iconic “Blue Jacket” volunteers can all relive a bit of the local Olympic excitement at an upcoming event.
What: Winter Games Legacy Celebration for “Blue Jacket” Volunteers
When: Sunday, 9 February 2014 from 12:30pm until 2:30pm
