Basking In The Glow Of Vancouver

Basking In The Glow Of Vancouver

In the afterglow of the Vancouver Olympics, we still smile at the similarities between the winter sports and open water swimming.

It was cool to see how the team pursuit speed skaters are similar to open water relays.

It was cool to see how the physicality and mishaps of short-track speed skaters are similar to what happens at elite open water races.

It was cool to see how the lessons of teamwork of Nordic cross-country skiers can be applied to the open water world.

But it was especially cool to see this video about the Vancouver Olympics from the Canadian perspective. It is a wonderfully poignant view of the power of the collective experience that the Olympics offers the host country.
