Jacqui Cohen hired Jonathan to capture her jog to Olympic glory, taking her turn in the torch relay through Gastown early this morning.
It was a sight to see, watching Jacqui ignite her torch with our famous steam clock and the north shore mountains as a backdrop. Ms Cohen embraced the crowd as she made her way along her 300m stint, waving and smiling, stopping along the way for photos with friends and various members of the community.
Her family was in tow to cheer Jacqui on, including her mother who was perhaps one of the most stylish ladies in the crowd. We managed to snap a photo of Jacqui with her mom and daughter – three beautiful generations!
Jacqui then finished her run by celebrating with her family, friends and staff at the Army and Navy store on Cordova Street.
Congrats to Jacqui for representing Gastown and Vancouver so graciously and congrats to all the torch bearers across Canada that have made this journey so special and memorable for all of us.
With just hours to spare until the Opening Ceremonies, we’d like to wish everyone a wonderful Olympic experience.
GO CANADA GO!
