The Olympic Torch bound for Vancouver leaves Calgary

By
Real Estate Agent with Discovery Real Estate Ltd. - "Homes By Jones"

Early today Wednesday,january 21 2010, The Olympic Torch said it's  goodbye's to Calgary with a party at Calgary Real Estaet - Canada Olympic ParkCanada Olympic Park (COP), with Calgary snowboarder Tyler MacRae.   Sochi (Russia) 2014 Winter Olympics hopeful criss-crosses down the half-pipe with the lit torch in his right hand.

Not to be outdone, at Stoney First Nations, the aboriginal torchbearers are met with a drum circle, native dancers in colourful costumes, and several chiefs on the stage in formal headdress.

In Canmore, Alberta thousands of fans go wild when Paralympian Sandy Lacour, a visually impaired cross-country skier who won gold at the Innsbruck 1988 Paralympic Games, lights the cauldron. Then 20 skiers took their turns with the torch around the Canmore Nordic Centre.

Banff, Alberta wasn't to be out done. the Canadian Tenors were on hand to serenade one and all? Wow what a day!
