Olympic Torch Passes By The Workshop

January 20, 2010

With only 24 days left until the Vancouver 2010 Olympics (but who’s counting?) we were pretty excited and lucky to have the Olympic Torch Relay pass right by our workshop in Canmore as it made its way to the Nordic Centre.  It couldn’t have been a nicer day, the sun is shining and the weather is sweet.  We all ran up the street to greet the Torchbearers as they passed off the flame that was lit in Olympia, Greece.  How cool is that?  I’m not sure who this Torchbearer is with Akiko (right) and Kimi (left) but I left my Sherlock Holmes hat at home. Can anyone ID this gentleman Torchbearer? You might need a microscope.
