The Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics were opened last Friday and the first weekend of competition saw medals won and medals lost. Some athletes just happy to be in Vancouver while others won’t be happy until they’ve got a medal hanging round their neck.
And today is Day 8 of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, almost the halfway mark, and it’s time to have a closer look at the activities in Vancouver. Over 100 medals have been awarded so far, with the United States, Germany, Norway and Canada leading the medal race.
Either way, sport at the highest level always brings with it powerful pictures of concentrated athletes and spirited fans hoping their favorite will get that coveted moment of glory. Here’re some best photos from Days 1-8 of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. [Vancouver2010 via Boston]
