The Winter Olympics began tonight with a beautiful ceremony in Vancouver. The ceremony took viewers through the history of Canada and introduced the teams. Overall I found the ceremony to be visually stunning, but it lacked flow and shock factor. I enjoyed the Beijing Summer Olympics more.
Take a look at the creative and colorful outfits here.
Listen to the musical talents of some of Canada's best here. Sarah McLachlan was spectacular.
Check out the pictures:
Only hours before the ceremony, a luger from the country of Georgia, Nodar Kumaritashvili, was killed in a horrific training-run crash at Whistler. The Ceremony was dedicated to Kumaritashvili and the team members wore black arm bands to honor their teammate.
