Let The Games Begin

In response to this
"The Canadian Olympic motto is "Go for the bronze", a spirit exemplified by our greatest Olympic heroine, Silken Laumann. Silken was favored to take gold in the single scull in the '92 Olympics, but just 10 weeks before the games suffered an open tibia leg fracture and nerve damage in an accident that her doctors pronounced career ending. Three weeks later, unable to walk, she was lifted from her wheelchair into her scull. The bronze she eventually went on to win in '92 is Canada's brightest medal."

Gold is great. Pride and inspiration is better.
