IN THE KNOW: Vancouver Olympics 2010 Highlights

Vancouver Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony

It was a night of spectacular graphics, creative lighting, artistic vision, cultural symbolism, athletic talent and entertainment. But it was also a night of sombre remembrance with the ceremony occurring only a few hours after the death of Georgian Luge athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili during a practice run yesterday morning.

The Georgian Olympic team received a standing ovation from the crowd of over sixty thousand upon entering the stadium and a one minute silence was observed during the ceremony to honour his memory.

The Vancouver Olympics while marred by tragedy also relished the dreams of the athletes who will be competing over the next few days all hoping for Olympic Gold. And so in true Olympic spirit 'Let the Games Begin'.
