Olympic Winners 2/13-2/16

Posted on: February 17, 2010

The Olympics are well underway as we are several days into the games and have been met with tragedy and some amazing successes. Our hearts and condolences go out to Nodar Kumaritashvili’s friends and family. On a happy note, the Bilodeau brought home the first gold medal won on Canadian soil. Zhao and Shen came out of retirement and won not only their first Olympic gold medal, but the first gold in figure skating for China! Many exciting things have happened so far and we’re sure that many more will come.

If you’ve been following along in our Olympics forum, you know that we’ve had some daily events of our own going on in conjunction with the Olympic games. We have quite a few winners thus far and some other exciting news to share.
