Short Track Speed Skating

On Friday, February 26 Sarah and I went to the Pacific Coliseum to see the only city-based (ie, not in Whistler) Olympic event we would attend together. Apolo Anton Ohno was a very classy athlete, applauding his competitors as they were announced and shaking hands with everyone after the race. Held at the same venue as the figure skating, it had by far the most comfortable seating we had yet experienced. And to top off the entire experience, not only did Apolo get his 8th medal, but one of his relay team ran into the stands and gave his mother the Bronze medal, and she was gracious enough to allow us to pose with it! (And it is surprisingly heavy!) See all the photos from the day.
