Olympics Notebook: Vancouver 2010

Vancouver podcast — day 1



Kevin Fylan is joined by Steve Keating, Ossian Shine and Mary Milliken for a fireside chat on day one of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

We discuss the opening ceremony, and that extraordinary failure at the end, plus the state of Lindsey Vonn’s shin and the first gold medal at the Games.

Best listened to with a clamato juice in hand.

Welcome to our Picture of the Day feature from the just opened Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

Each day of the Games a senior photo editors will choose a frame they particularly like from our team of photographers at the Olympics here in Vancouver, and up at Whistler and Cypress.

Welcome to our live blog on a big day for Vancouver, as the city welcomes the world for the Winter Olympics. The opening ceremony doesn’t get started for another eight hours or so but we’ll be here all day to keep you posted on the torch relay through the city and all the excitement travelling with it.
