In just a few short weeks (February 7th to be exact) the XXII Olympic Winter games will start. Around here, we all get excited about watching the Olympics, both winter and summer games! The opening ceremonies are always spectacular, one of the things on my bucket list -> being at the opening ceremonies of one of the Olympics. You just never know…
Having so many different countries and cultures gathered in one place and feeling the collective energy would be just incredible. We get to see the parade athletes as they come in to the arena on tv and see the pride on all of their faces, but it would be such an incredible feeling to be there and really feel all that energy and pride in the arena at the time.
Our Canadian athletes work very hard, and it makes me very proud to see them accomplish what they have, and to see the pride they have in representing our country. I love supporting them and cheering them on whenever I can.
Our favourite sports to watch around here are the Skiing and figure skating events (my family is a skiing family) even my husband loves to watch the figure skating events with us. Can’t wait to see some of my favourites like Tessa Moir & Scott Virtue, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford , Patrick Chan, and up and comer Kaetlyn Osmond. I am already making plans to make sure I don’t miss the Ice Dance on Feb 9th at 7pm [will have to check if that is local our time or Russia time!] Either way, I am excited and plan on making our favourite snacks and gathering in front of the TV! We even have our collection of Canada shirts ready to put on to cheer on our team.
Yoplait is also a proud supporter of Team Canada, Yoplait brands like Yoplait Source® and Yoplait Minigo® are ready to cheer on our Canadian Athletes! I am really happy to see companies like Yoplait supporting our athletes in all their efforts so that they can go on and represent us, and focus on being the best that they can be while we cheer them on from home.
