The Torch Has Arrived In Canada

October 30, 2009 Leave a comment

Before it begins its 45,000 kilometer journey, the longest route in just one country, the torch must first spend some time in Victoria, its first host. The relay is not off to a good start, however, as the plane carrying it arrived around an hour late.

Many protest groups are expected along the trail. Support for the games has dropped to around 50% in the host province of British Columbia. Protest groups are expected to protest, among other things, poverty, the environment, and aboriginal rights.

Yeah, I’m way late on this, but the 2010 medal designs have been revealed. A lot of people aren’t a fan, but I like them. Also, the paralympic medals will be pyramid shaped, so that’s cool.
