Recommended Posts

In the (minimum) 3-kilo, souvenir book that Vanoc produced after the Vancouver Olympics and which was delivered today, there is a two-page spread on gold medalists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. The quote that is printed on the full-page photo of the Olympic champions is from Gia Kourlas:
