Vancouver 2010 Day 5 in Photos

February 17th, 2010 @ 10:08am (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

Yesterday was another action-packed adventure here in Olympics land. The sun was shining, the cherry blossoms started to pop on the trees, and it was a great day for sport.

Day 5 February 16, 2010

The morning started out like any other, John Biehler met John and I at our house and we all walked up to the media centre at Robson Square. Coffee flowed and a team from Nova Scotia showed up to give us chocolate, scarves and swag to celebrate Nova Scotia Day at the Games.

As we got our photos and posts ready for the day and I was interviewed by CBC (French) in the morning regarding social media at the Olympics. In the afternoon I was given an all-access tour of the CBC which I will write about in another post. This was seperate from my interview earlier in the day and I had the chance to ask news anchor Ian Hanomansing how he’s covering the Olympics as a non-official broadcaster.

Later in the day we were invited to the Molson Brewery to watch the Canada vs Norway men’s ice hockey game yesterday. Once again the hospitality and kindness of the Molson crew truly shined as they also unveiled to our crowd a special celebration bottle they’ll be giving to our medalists.

Packing up and walking home from the media centre every day there are thousands of people still out and about on the streets. Concerts happening in Robson Square while kids take to the ice for a skate as late as 10:00pm.

At the end of Day 5 of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics Games yesterday, Canada was up another gold and another silver. Ending the day off with a 8-0 men’s ice hockey victory was just the icing on the cake.

    Wow… first a medal and then a really big bottle of beer!!! It brings a tear to my eye.

    Who’s signature is that on it. I am assuming the #1 refers to the bottle number.

    Geoff Molson signed about 30-40 of these bottles, one for each medalist for Canada.
