No, I’m not actually in Vancouver right now, but I always love celebrating and watching the Olympic Games, be they Summer or Winter. There’s just something completely awesome and inspiring about seeing so many nations coming together, represented by their elite athletes. Some of them are household names, some are complete nobodies taking a shot at becoming recognized as the best in their sport.
The Winter Games are particularly exciting, I believe, because of its intimacy. The fast-pace and frigid conditions are unparalleled by the Summer games. Speed skating and alpine skiing are two of my favorites because of their intensity. You get such good closeups to the action, and there’s such a big bit of uncertainty that the competitions are always exciting to watch.
Anyway, the next two weeks will be great to experience.
More updates and a new look to the blog will be coming shortly!
