What a Day! Eh

Canada has won hockey gold! I was downtown at the Sony Store in the Pacific Centre mall with a bunch of Students Live reporters. Originally we were going to watch the gold medal hockey game at the International Media Centre but we had to leave. Dezmond stated that we go to the Sony Store in the Pacific Centre to watch the game that everyone was waiting for. We asked the manger of the store and he let us, we got front row seats. By the time to game started the store was packed with people watching the game, about 100 to 150 people were all watching and rooting our team. When the first goal was scored the store erupted everyone was cheering and excited. The second goal got scored and we were pumped up and cheering Canada on! By the end of the game we were all waiting for the last few seconds ready to celebrate. Everyone in Canada knows what happen in 24.4 seconds left of regulation time USA scored a goal to even up the game. Everyone was dead silent, you could hear a pin drop in the whole store. Commercials came on and there was a wave of chatter in the store, could Canada win? I am not a hockey pro, but the exact opposite. I said to one of the students live crew I have a feeling that Sidney Crosby is going to score the final goal. I said this because from what I had heard about him he is one of the best players. Then overtime started and about 12 minutes Crosby SCORES! I really did not see the goal at first but I just erupted with joy just like everyone around me. We screamed so loud I think I might lose my voice. Then we sang the national anthem, just an amazing moment. It was amazing the energy level was at an all time high. I feel like I am still working on that energy. We decided to go outside and it was just a big party everyone was singing and cheering. As soon as I get video of that moment I will put it up.
I just think that the past 17 days of my life have gone so fast. I feel as it was only yesterday that the flame was lit at BC stadium but tonight it went out. I have learned so much the past 17 days. I have made friends from all over Vancouver and have had some amazing experiences. Meet and saw inspiring athletes, and I'm still taking it all in. I am now truly Canadian loving a sport that we are the champions. Today sitting in the Sony store surrounded by people that love hockey and are proud to be Canadian I felt thrilled. I was apart of something I felt like I was at the stadium rooting Canada on. It is just a feeling that words cannot describe, I am still running on a hockey high! =p I love being in Canada. Just want to thank Chris, Audrey, Christian, Gary and Lauren for creating this program and making this happen. Paralympics start on March 12th. Til then!

I did not get to ask a question but Hannah and I got to talk to the friends and family of Scott and Tessa.

videoThe other video will be up shortly!

First Press Confrence



Feeling like a true reporter writing from a media work room at the International Media Centre. The first press conference that I watch was between a signing of a Protocol of Intent between the host cities of the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. The 2014 Winter Olympic Games will be in Sochi, Russia. The host city of 2010 Winter Olympic representives was Honorable Premier Gordon Campbell, and his Worship Mayor Gregor Robertson. The Representatives for the host city of 2014 Winter Olympic was Dzhambulat Khatouv, First Vice-Governor of Krasnodar Region of Russia and Anatoli Pakhomov, Mayor of Sochi.


This press conference was between the two countries meeting and signing an agreement. This agreement will strengthen the ties between the two host cities. The Premier gave a speech on how this agreement will help both host cities. British Columbia will help the Russian's host their very first Olympic Games, by giving tips and techniques. The First Vice-Governor of Krasnodor Region of Russia spoke next in his native language and talked about how great the 2010 Olympics games are. He talked about how the trading between Canada and Russia is very strong already but he hopes that it will increase by ten fold. He joked around and said that he just did not come to Vancouver to talk trade but also to get tips and tricks to win gold medals.

After they had given their speeches they signed the agreement! I think this is a great thing that the countries can both join together and help each other. This is a great way to show how the big countries of the world are working together! The Premier gave the First Vice-Governor a miniature replica of the 2010 torch. The First Vice-Governor gave the Premier a plate that shows all of what the Krasnodor Region had to offer. The Mayor of Vancouver and the Mayor of Sochi both gave a speeches as well. The Mayor of Vancouver gave the Mayor of Sochi a special 2010 Olympic Medal, likewise the Mayor of Sochi gave Mayor of Vancouver a token with the coat of arms of Sochi!


After that Hannah and went up to Premier Gordon and asked him if we could take a picture. He was in a rush so we could not get to ask any questions.

Press Confrence!

Today I sit and blog in a place that is filled with other reporter from all over the world. Today my and my fellow reporter Hannah both have access to the International Media Centre! So I sit here in the Press Theatre surrounded by different reporters from all over the world. I am super excited and the atmosphere in this room is amazing.

First Ever Hockey GAME



On Friday I went to my first ever hockey game and it was a blasted. I will not even bother telling the score, you can find it on the Internet. What I will tell you is my personal experience at the hockey game. I lived in Bermuda for most of my life and we never had snow or ice so hockey was not a game that everyone played. Coming to Canada I was sucked into a hockey crazed nation. I feel like I have started to become a true Canadian and is started to LOVE hockey.

I got inside GM Place and was amazed there was so much people in the stadium. We were sitting in the upper bowl which was a good seat for me because I get to see the whole stadium. The game started and the energy level in the stadium raised to a maximum! The energy level was amazing and I think that the players were feeding off the energy. I did not know much about the game, good thing I was with Students Live. They all explained the game to me, the newbie! ☺
The energy in the game was what amazed me, everyone was cheering for their team with such heart! The game was between Latvia and Czech Republic but you saw a see of red. Everyone was cheering for Latvia when they were losing! I just can not believe the support that the audience was giving the team! I have watch a couple of live sports but i think that hockey is the number one sport for highest energy!
Currently watching the Canada vs. USA game! Yes I have gotten sucked in the hockey craze! Canada better win!!

Athlete's Village





Yesterday was a day that I was in Vancouver for the whole day! It felt really nice, the sun was shining and it was a perfect day to go athlete hunting. My fellow report Samaah and I decided to go to the Athlete's Village and see if we bumped into any athletes. I did not think that we would run into any but I was proven wrong. We met a Turkish Figure Skater, the full interview is on Samaah website which you can find of http://www.studentslive.ca/. We hung around the athlete's village entrance for about two hours since we could not go inside.

While I was waiting I had to take pictures of the city, the view from the Cambie Street Bridge is break taking. I think I will let my pictures do the talking. Unfortunaly blogger is not letting me layout my pictures. So I will make a collage and then post it!

We wandered around and saw some huge solar panels. There were posters of information so we decided to go and take a look. I just realized that I did not clarify where we were, we got off at Olympic Village from the Canada Line. Back to the poster that I was reading, they were showing how Vancouver was a "green city". I personally knew this was true because when I first moved here it seemed that everyone was green. Vancouver is a city that recycles everything and charges a recycling fee on everything. Not that I am complaining I am pro green! The posters were about how the athletes village was green. The village uses the energy from sewage and turns it into energy that can be used for everyday things. The energy is converted into electricity that they uses to heat water, heat houses and many other things. The False Creek area including the Athletes Village has a Platinum LEED rating. This is a very high rating in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system. Vancouver is a green city and its 2010 Athletes Village is green too.
I went to my very first hockey game after that!! The Students Live team is so amazing they got last minutes tickets for everyone that could come. I just want to thank Chris Kennedy, Audrey Hobbs, Gary Kern and Christina Adams for creating this program. My first ever hockey game was an Olympic game and I was amazed! Post will be up by tonight!

My Day Downtown

After I had finished looking around in the Yaletown LiveCity I decided to hop on the Canada Line a go to the heart of the 2010 Olympic Games. Downtown Vancouver was jam packed with thousands and thousands of people. It made me feel so globally connected because I was standing next to a guy that was from Sweden or Russia or a country that I have never ever heard of! There are so many people in Vancouver from all around the world and it makes Vancouver busy but it also helps show people our stunning city. I spoke to some people that were visiting Vancouver and they are impressed by our city; the love what they are seeing and I think some are thinking of coming back!

The first thing of my list of things to do in the city was go to the Coke Cola Pin Trading Centre in the Olympic Superstore to get two things. I needed the last pin of the CTV pin collection and I was hoping that someone had it and they were willing to trade. I had food poisoning the day they were giving out the pin so I could not get it. The second thing I want was a pin with my picture on it! Unfortunate you had to line up to get inside the Olympic Superstore, and the line was very long. I could not wait in line for that long, it was just way to long for me. Disappointed I walked to West Pender and Granville street.

If you are wondering why I walked there, that is location of the Canadian Mint Pavilion. There was a line to go inside the pavilion but it was medium sized so I waited in line. It was much shorter than the line that let you go and see the 2010 Olympic Medals! If you were willing to wait around three hours you can go inside and touch and see the Olympic medals. I was not that interested and frankly did not have that much patience in me. While waiting I line I started to talk to a couple from Victoria, BC. They did not have any tickets to the Olympic games but were enjoying all the other Olympic items that Vancouver had to offer. They had to leave and still was about half way to the entrance. So I started to talk to the American couple in front of me, they were wearing American jerseys. ☺ They were from North Carolina and had a couple of tickets to the games. They were enjoying their time in Vancouver.


Once I got in the Pavilion I walked around and saw all the different types of coins that the Canadian Mint had made. There was also a video playing on how exactly they make all the different type of coins. I looked around and then found a line of people waiting, they were waiting to take pictures. I joined the line and found out that it was line to take a picture or make a 30 second video of why you are the best Vancouver fan ever. The winner will get a trip to Ottawa to see the Mint, get their face on a coin and other prizes. I decide to take a picture, there were many options to choose from for the picture. I picked one I thought was good. What do you guys think? After that I went to the Gold room to see the 1 Million dollar coin, I did not know that this existed. I was stunned to see a huge pure gold coin weighing 100 kilograms. It looked really pretty, but no longer is worth 1 million dollars. It is now worth around 3.5 million dollars!! ☺☺ WOW! Along with the coin there were other gold coins and items that the mint had made. A very special thing that was their was a real gold bar! Yes, they ones that they show in movies, you can go and take a picture with it. The only catch was that you had to wait in line, but it was short and it was worth the wait. The gold bar is heavy, I could lift it up only for a couple of seconds!
I exited the mint with a new pin and a 2010 circulation quarter, they were trading quarter. I am also collecting the quarter but I am just getting them from my change. I decided to walk back the the Vancouver City Centre skytrain hoping that the line for the Olympic Superstore was now shorter. When I got there the line was much shorter and I was in the store in 15 minutes. The store was full of people buying up all the 2010 Olympic merchandise. I skipped all that and rushed to the Pin Trading Centre. I asked a couple of people did they have a the last CTV pin but sadly no one had it and if they did they are not trading it. So I got my picture in a pin which was fun. I think it turned out good. Don't you?
Tomorrow I will be Downtown again! Hoping to see the BC Pavilion and LiveCity Downtown!!

Yaletown LiveCity

Today I was not in school for most of the day, I was in Downtown Vancouver taking in all the Olympic excitement. My tourism teacher decided that our class would be able to come to the Yaletown LiveCity venue as a field trip. It was a day that a lot of school in the lower mainland were invited to come and see some educational Olympic items. There were different athletes that came and talked to the us, the children were from elementary all the way to high school. There was a performance by a group from the Yukon! They performers were amazing, I loved how they told their way of life in the Yukon all year round. I visited all the sponsor pavilions while I was in the venue.

The Acer Pavilion is really nice, and it doesn't usually have a long line to get inside. Waiting in line is something that I did alto of through out the rest of the day. Inside the pavilion there are Acer computer and many different interactive things to do. The Samsung pavilion is the next thing I waited in line for, it was not a long wait maybe only twenty minutes. Nothing compared to the wait at the Coke Cola pavilion. I am glad I had already gone inside the pavilion before. When inside the Samsung pavilion you get a passport and you can get stickers of the mascots by playing different games. After playing at least one game you receive a scratch and win card. What ever you get on you card is what you win and the top prize being an Omnaia II cellphone, everyone gets a cellphone screen cleaner no matter what. I got the third prize which was a Samsung umbrella, and a cellphone screen cleaner that is coming in handy! Then it was off to the last pavilion the Panasonic which was showing a full 3D movie but I had no time to watch the movie. Instead I made my eco card which gets sent the to the Panasonic website. Check it out at http://eco-ideas.net/























































Women's Curling

Yesterday was my 17th birthday, and to celebrate it I got to go to an Olympic Event with my church group. I won my ticket by a little Olympic Trivia, which I am now a pro in. So I am all ready to go to a Victory Ceremony at BC Place when I realized that we were leaving way to late for the victory ceremony. It turned out that I won tickets to Women's Curling at the Vancouver Olympic Centre. It was a pleasant surprise for me and I enjoyed myself! It was a fun experience!
There was three curling games going on at the same time, Great Britain versus Sweden, China versus Switzerland and Russia versus Denmark. The winners of the match was Sweden, China and Russia. I had no clue about curling but by the time I was out of the Centre I was full of knowledge. I was looking confused when a nice Canadian gentlemen asked me if I needed help understanding the game. I knew he was Canadian because of his Canadian jacket! He explained the game to me and then I really got into the game! I was getting fixed on the Swiss vs. the Chinese, the Swiss cheering squad was in the back ringing cow bells! Their cow bells were HUGE! The game was really intense but at the end China won, but the Swiss played really well. A bunch of American guys were in the stadium trying to get everyone pumped up and excited by doing the wave! It worked, and the stadium looked really awesome!

I went downtown today and went to LiveCity Yaletown with my tourism class and then wondered around. Will have a post about that in a little bit! The medal count for Canada right now is 3 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze!!

2010 Cauldron

After the victory ceremony I went to the outdoor cauldron, Downtown was so busy! The street was filled with many people and everyone was showing off their own country!! I walked from the waterfront station to the cauldron, I did not know where it was so I asked the volunteers. They are really nice and they pointed the way to the cauldron. Many people were wanting to see the cauldron and it was a sea of people. When I reached to the cauldron there were gates! Gates were around the cauldron and to make it worse there was a banner! You could hardly take a nice picture of the cauldron! Aah it annoyed me because this is something that people want to take a picture of! I got up to the front pressing my camera lens through the fence and got a couple of pictures. Some one had ripped off the banner in the front so people can take pictures.


Even though the the Cauldron was covered it was an amazing sight. It was massive and it burned strong! This was also the same night that Alexandre Bilodeau won the first gold medal on Canadian soil! Go Canada! As of today the medal count for Canada is 1 Bronze Medal, 2 Silver and 2 GOLD!! Today Maelle Ricker won GOLD!! So excited!! Victory Ceremony tomorrow!!

First Victory Ceremony

The first victory ceremony of the 2010 Olympics was on Feb 14th! It was a great night celebrating British Columbia the host province. It showcased the various talents that British Columbia had to offer! First a group of performers were aboriginal and they did a traditional dance and the traditional drums. After that a group of Punjabi dancers started to dance and then this lead into a very awesome fashion show! The designs were so beautiful! Then a drum show began which was very up beat and made me want to dance! While the drums were playing a ballet dance came in to form.
After that it was time for the medal ceremony, we sat and then stood up! It was a great ceremony. A cool fact about the medals was the if you put all the medal together is makes a picture. The artist had in mind that each medal was one of a kind, but together they make a picture. The medals were amazing, I give koodoos to the artist!
Then it was time for the Nelly Furado show! She rocked BC place with her music! She sang about six songs and then left. She sang some of her famous songs like Maneater and I'm like a bird. It was a fun ceremony and I can not wait till I go again on my birthday Feb. 17th!
*My computer is being slow, when it working pictures will be up*

A Fallen Athlete

February 12th is a day that everyone will remember as the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics, but for the Georgian it will forever be a day of morning. Nodar Kumaritashvili a Georgian Luge Athlete died in a tragic accident on Feb. 12. Nodar Kumaritashvili was only 21 years old and this was his first every Olympic appearance. Nodar was ranked 44th in the World and had qualified for the 2010 Olympics. The Georgian team still marched in the athletes parade in the opening ceremonies but wore black arm bands and a black ribbon on their flag in morning of their fallen team mate. The whole Olympic community is shocked by this death and their support is with the Georgian team and family of Nodar. My condolences to the family of Nodar, his team mates and the whole Georgian community. I hope they will find strength and win any medals in the honor of him.
The IOC and the Luge governing body state that the other Luge competitions will go on as planned. They have said that the death of Nodar was due to human error not the tracks speed. No matter what the officials or newspapers say it was truly unfortunate that he lost his life. He could have gotten gold. A sad start to the 2010 Olympic Games, my heart goes out to the family and friends. I will be going to the first Victory Ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympic games on Sunday!

A Great Start

The Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Olympic Games was a spectacular show. Each component of the show was choreographed to perfection. My favorite part of the show was the Aboriginal piece, it was amazing. It was great that VANOC had joined with the Aboriginal people of BC. It made Vancouver's opening ceremonies so unique. Another great part of the show was the mountain and the snowboards and skiers. It was a creative way to incorporate snow in an closed stadium.
The show was great, there was five final torch bearers! Wayne Gretzky, Steve Nash, Nancy Greene, Rick Hansen and Catriona Le May Dean. Unfortunately one of the four pillars of the cauldron was not coming up. It look a little silly at first but all in all it was a magically night. Wayne Gretzy then went down to Waterfront to light the outside cauldron which was breath taking!

Only Half an Hour left

Only half an hour left until the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. I was following the torch relay and it was amazing. I think I will let the pictures speak for themselves! My favourite part of the torch relay was when the "torch kiss" this is when the two torches meet and the flame is transferred between the torches. The torch relay is the longest domestic torch relay in Olympic history. Over 45,000 km was covered, over 12,000 torch bearers carried the flame through out Canada.

I went downtown and went to Robson Square to see all the buzz there. The zip line was in full swing and it looked like so much fun! I might go on it soon, if I get a chance to. The BC house was very busy, I did not get to go in but it looked like fun! Then I walked to the library to see the CODE sponsored by the Cultural Olympiad. The CODE is about the Olympic Truce, it was not in service today but I think it is going to in the other days. The Olympic Truce is about making your peace. I caught the Canada Line to Yaletown when I saw the torch relay again! It was amazing I think I got some great pictures!
Then I wondered around and ended up at the Livecity Yaletown. Just a couple of tips if you are going to any Livecity events. Try to come with the smallest bag possible because you will go through security. Do not bring any food or bevarages becuase they will trash them. Only half an hour till the Opening Ceremonies!! Watch it live are http://www.ctv.bc.ca/






































































































































































ITS HERE

The day is finally here! Today is the day that the Olympic flame will enter BC Place and official start the 2010 Olympic Games.

Opening Ceremonies!

I have just come home from the final dress rehearsal of the 2010 Olympic Opening Ceremonies! It was an amazing show! The ceremony was stunning and the world will love what they will see on Feb. 12th. I am not going to say anything about the show, I do not want to give it away. I can however tell you that it is going to be an opening ceremony that the world is going to remember. The whole world is going to be in awe as the Opening Ceremonies start! The show is jam packed with famous Canadian singers and an spectacular aboriginal piece. Ooops I think I said to much already, no more about the show.

Things that you need to know if you are going to the opening ceremonies or any other Olympic Game event is that you need to come prepared. Your ticket acts as your bus pass and you can ride on public transit the day of your event. I think that it is best if you leave early and make sure you give yourself ample amout of time. When you are at the event try to bring the smallest bag possible so you will not have to wait in line for security. Make sure that you do not bring any food, or any other items that are prohibited by VANOC. To get more information on what you can and cannot bring go to VANOC's website" http://www.vancouver2010.com/

The 2010 Olympics Games are almost here! The opening ceremony on Friday will blow your mind! Make sure to watch the event on TV or if you have tickets have fun! Tomorrow I will go to the torch celebration at Yaletown!!

Only 2 DAYS!

WOW! I can't believe it, only two more days till the 2010 Olympic, the flame that was lit four months ago in Greece is going to be home at BC Place in a mere two days. The flame is traveling through out the lower mainland for the past couple of days. Today it is in Richmond, and there is a big party at the Richmond O-Zone. A huge party were everyone is getting ready for Olympic games, live concerts and just a fun way to celebrate the Olympics.

Tomorrow is when I will go to the final rehearsal of the Opening Ceremonies and am super excited! The opening ceremonies are going to be amazing with many people doing amazing performances.

Olympic Craze

Today was a drizzly day in Vancouver, but Olympic fever had taken over the city. In the morning there was Students Live meeting, where we got our transit passes! After that went to the International Media Centre at Robson Square. The media centre is amazing, it is exactly what every reporter would dream of. It is high tech, and is going to be buzzing with excitement. Many reporters from all over the world will be in the centre writing to their newspapers. It will truly be an amazing experience. I will be going to the Centre on February 12th; the day of the opening ceremonies!
On the way to Robson Square we walked down Granville Street and there was so much people on the street. There was a lantern road and and many sculptures by different artist. When we were walking we spotted a couple of Czech Republic athletes. We all decide to go up to them and ask them what sport they are competing in. They were luge athletes and we got a picture with them. Unfortunately it was not with my camera, as soon as I get that picture I will put it up. We also met some Russian officials at the food court in the Pacific Centre. They were nice enough to let us take a picture with them.

The 2010 Olympic Games are almost here, the torch is getting closer to BC Stadium and on February 12. I will be going to the Opening Ceremonies Final Rehearsal on February 10th. Next post will be then!

Getting to the Games

The games are getting closer and the road restrictions are setting in place in Vancouver. Many major roads downtown will be closed for the Olympic Games, downtown traffic is going to be crazy. VANOC is urging commutators to leave their car at home and catch public transit. If that is not possible they suggest that people car pool. Going downtown during the Olympics is going to be crazy, but there are some things that can ease the craziness.
A great way to travel downtown during the Olympic games is to catch public transit. There will be more buses on the road to Olympic Venues and the sky trains will be running more frequently. It is best to check on http://www.translink.ca/ to plan your trip ahead of time. Translink has a great tool that lets you plan your trip and gives everything from walking distance to fare. I use it a lot when I need to get around Vancouver! The Canada line connects most Olympic venues with in walking or one bus trip. A good tip is to go early, lines will be crazy and its always good to get there early. VANOC is suggesting that you should go at least two hours before your event, yes a long time! Its better to go early then to miss your event!

Another great way to get around for the games is the Olympic Line Street Car. This street car will only be around for the 2010 Olympic games. On Monday I celebrated the end of midterms by going downtown and figure skating at Robson Garden. It was my first time figure skating and I did not fall down!!! Robson Garden look amazing and I had a blast. Robson Garden is the place where the British Columbia pavilion will be. Another great thing at Robson Square is the city zip line that will be open during the games! I hope I will be able to go one it!! After the skating I decided to check out the Olympic Line Street Car. It is a cable car that runs from Olympic Village to Granville Island. It is a free twelve minute ride that uses the old Vancouver cable car line. The two cable cars are on loan from Brussels, Belgium and they are very cool! The cable car is very stylish and show a different side of Vancouver. It shows a quieter side and a very natural side as well. The cable car started on January 21 and will end on March 21, they run from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM. A fun way to get to Granville Island.


Getting round the games will be crazy but it will be worth it, so see that amazing event!! The Olympic Games are getting closer!
