Vancouver Olympic Cauldron Lit for Gold Medals

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

It took several days for Vancouver to involve its Olympic cauldron in Sochi 2014 celebrations but since it fired back up again on February 12th, it’s been re-lit every evening at 6:00pm when Canada wins a gold medal in competition that day. Tonight it will be lit thanks to our gold medals in Ski Cross (Marielle Thompson) and Men’s Curling (Brad Jacobs and his rink), and it will burn for about 2 hours.
