STRAIGHT FROM VANCOUVER AND THE 2010 OLYMPICS
“It is a reminder to all of us that in this wonderful country of ours anything is possible if you dream big and are prepared to put in the work to achieve great things.”
Thanks for your best wishes to the boys prior to the Olympic Final. Quite frankly, I have never experienced anything this special in my life. First of all, to have our son compete for his country in the Olympics is really something. But for it to take place in our home country Canada and for them to win gold was over the top! The arena was packed for every game and the atmosphere was electric. It definitely gave the boys an extra edge to know that close to 6,000 fans were behind them. The icing on the cake was in the 10th end of the Gold Medal game, just before John threw his first rock, the crowd broke into a spontaneous and heartfelt version of “OH Canada”. What a special moment. John stepped back, enjoyed the moment, waited for the anthem to be completed and then threw his shot and made it.
We then watched the medal ceremony with incredible pride and then met up with the team later on for a private reception and party at Canada’s Olympic House.
It is a reminder to all of us that in this wonderful country of ours anything is possible if you dream big and are prepared to put in the work to achieve great things.
All the best Bill & Rolande and keep up the great work with e-Veritas!
