Standings after round #3 Womens Bobsleigh - Feb 24

What an event to be able to witness in person, as Canada claimed both Gold and Silver in the women’s bobsleigh! The atmosphere was electric, with a huge crowd gathered even though Canada was playing Russia in the men’s hockey quarterfinals at the same time. The stadium announcer did his best to keep us informed of the score in that game (eventually won by Canada 7-3), at appropriate breaks in the bobsleigh action.

Andrew came up from White Rock to take in the event and festivities around Whistler Village. I hope he is still speaking to me after I made him hike up to the start of the bobsleigh – the equivalent vertical rise of about a quarter of the Grouse Grind. I guess I “forgot” to tell him about that part of the day 🙂

I was not having as much success in capturing the fast-moving sleds as Andrew, but I do have a few pictures in this SmugMug gallery.

I decided I might have better luck with a couple of short videos that are in my YouTube Olympic playlist.
