The Olympic Torch RelayThere is one very amazing thing that made this Olympics so great.That was how patriotic Canadians were. What made Canadians sopatriotic was how the Olympic torch went all across Canada. It madeall Canadians become a part of the Olympic games. The Torchmade an amazing journey over 1,000 communities across Canadastarting in Victoria and ending in Vancouver. This video is about the Torch going across Canada.
The lead up problems There were many problems before the games, some of the many problems were:• Almost 30,000 spectators got turned away from Cypress to view the sports up there because the standing room was unsafe because of too much water.• It was raining, not snowing at Cypress Mountain so they had to import snow from other mountains• Luger Nodar Kumaritashvili died after crashing at the Whistler bobsled track just before the opening ceremonies• During the opening ceremonies one of the four pillars in the Olympic cauldron failed to rise• This one isn’t really a problem for the Olympics but for Canadian fans, Canada had never won a gold medal at the Olympics in Canada.

The Opening CeromoniesThe opening ceremonies in the Vancouver2010 games were amazing. Many peoplesaid the ceremonies would be one of theworst ceremonies ever, but I don’t agree
The Olympics weren’t starting out well for Canadians or athletes of Canada. Heavyrain continued on Cypress and was making the events miserable. In the first day noCanadian had got gold. Many fans thought the curse on Canadians Olympians athome will continue ( a Canadian Olympic competitor has never won a gold on homesoil). Jennifer Heal, didn’t even succeed to win gold in the Olympics and she wassaid to be Canada’s 2nd biggest chance to win gold beside the Canadian hockeyteam. But it all turned around for Canadian’s when something amazing happened thenext day of the Olympics.
The other 13After that Canadian athletes startedwinning many gold medals. In totalCanadian athletes won 14 gold medalssetting a record for the most gold medalswon in the Olympic games. In the nextslides I will show you the many goldmedals Canadians have won.
