Olympics Notebook: Vancouver 2010
I felt like I was floating on cloud nine as I gingerly touched the Olympic gold medal sitting there in my hand and staring back at me.
I’ve dreamed of this moment all my life. Words cannot describe how I’m feeling right now – then the voice of the security woman at the door broke my reverie: “No biting, kissing, licking and chewing of medals in any kind!”
Unfortunately I had not just been crowned an Olympic champion –- unless queue jumping counts as an Olympic sport!
Instead, I had just got a taste of what over 70,000 fans have been queuing up for -– to get an up close and personal look of the Vancouver Olympics medals.
