Canada the Face of the World for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games

Sunday, February 28th, 2010 marked the end of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, British Columbia, and although the weather didn't always cooperate there was true patriotism and excitement in the air - and it didn't matter if you were Norwegian or Korean or American or Canadian, no matter the athlete there were always encouraging cheers from people hailing from the most multicultural country in the world! Canada!

As the eyes of the World have been on Vancouver, Canada these last two weeks, it has come with enormous pride as a first generation Canadian to enjoy our country being celebrated.Canada's Olympic spirit and pride have shown the world what it means to be from the Great White North!

Although the 2010 Olympic Winter Games had a bumpy start the real gold medal belongs to the Canadians who volunteered for these games, who participated and who made Vancouver a true international experience.

There are two things that really make these Olympics special, the country it was held in and the people within it. Canada is and always has been a meld of every culture on earth - going into any event or even on the streets you had Europeans, North Americans, South Americans, Asians, Africans and Australians celebrating together - some of which came to enjoy the games from their respective countries or some which have lived in Canada for a few years or even all their lives. What really makes Canada special is its multicultural population - we have such a deep identity with Canada and with the countries our ancestors came from.

This multiculturalism makes it impossible for us to be strangers and this was seen in many events as many Canadians carried two flags into events cheering on for teams they, their parents, grandparents or even great-great grandparents came from. When we remember these games in the future we should look back and embrace how truly amazing these Olympics were and how they really brought the World out of us as well as the World to us! Well done Vancouver... well done!!!
