Let the Games Begin!!. Meeting the President of the Canadian Olympic Committee.

On Sunday I had the fortune of going to a presentation by Michael Chambers, The President of The Canadian Olympic Committee. In less than 100 days the world will descend upon Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. He gave a great overview of the mission, history and venues of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. We had a great conversation on many topics from what he's most excited about, to why Chicago didn't get the 2016 Games. I love the Olympic Games and all it stands for. The world coming together in peace in the spirit of sport. He gave me numerous pins, pens, and brochures to help promote the games. He shared what Vancouver is doing to try to solve its massive homelessness problem. Vancouver is one of the warmest cities in the entire country so it attracts a lot of the homeless. Overall it was a great pleasure to meet Mr. Chambers and reignite the Olympic Spirit within me. I wish the games began tomorrow. Let the Games Begin!
