Calgary – do we want another Olympics?
City council voted Monday to spend up to $5 million on an “exploration committee” to study a bid for the 2026 Olympic Games.
I remember the Calgary Olympics for the Battle of the Brians – Canada’s Brian Orser versus Brian Boitano from the U.S. in the men’s figure skating competition.
(Boitano won the gold, by the way.)
Jeff remembers the Olympics for the Jamaican bobsled team.
In 1988, I was 12 years old living in Ontario. To show our support for Calgary, our school board did an Olympic run.
Each school chose a few students to run the torch to another school. It was the biggest thing to ever happen to me!
