Sochi 2014 Olympics - Hayley Wickenheiser Named Canadian Flag Bearer

We are only a few weeks away from the opening ceremonies of the Sochi 2014 Olympics. I was so happy to read that Hayley Wickenheiser was named as the Canadian flag bearer! It's always so interesting to me to see the ceremonies, and how they vary each year based on the host country.

I love to watch the different sports, and cheer on the Canadian athletes. Of course it is nice to see medals come home, but I like to cheer on all of them -whether they will place in a medal position or not.

All the hard work and dedication to their training, and making it to the Olympics is amazing. I want my kids to see that hard work pays off, and it is not always about a gold medal.

My favorite winter sports to watch are Figure Skating (singles and pairs), hockey, skiing and bob sled (also was excited to read that the Jamaican's will have a bob sled team again this year - I always loved the movie Cool Runnings!)

In December 2009 we had a chance to see the Olympic Torch come through our town, and that was a really neat experience!

Do you watch the Olympics? What is your favorite sport to watch?
