This weekend is big. BIG, I tell you.
Friday February 12 is the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The Games, of course, are in Vancouver British Columbia. Here are a few resource links:
My first Olympic love was the Winter Games. I can hardly wait for the action to begin. As you might expect, several of the athletes on the US Olympic Team are from Colorado. It never hurts to root for the home-state gang.
I did see on the news this morning that Lindsey Vonn (said to be the Michel Phelps of the Winter Games) has an injured shin. May this highly-talented skier heal quickly.
In addition to the Olympic Games, this weekend is the ITU Winter Triathlon World Championships in Norway . Recall I’ve told you in past postings that the ITU is looking to get the sport of winter triathlon into the Olympic Games. Information on Worlds is found on both the ITU website and the official World Championship website.
Let the Games begin!
