With less than 7 weeks to go, Vancouver is putting the finishing touches on the city to ensure a spectacular arrival for our international and home-grown guests alike. The Olympic vibe is the air folks, so we thought we’d get in the spirit and share a few Olympic-esque snaps with ya’ll.
By the way, anyone have any hook ups for the Molson Canadian Hockey House? Looks like it’s going to be one hell of a party. Check this.

Sportsnet – Canada’s leader in high definition live-events – launched a campaign, encouraging viewers to logon to their website to cast their votes for Canada’s Hottest Athletes.
Hailing from Calgary, Canadian snowboarder Kimiko Zakreski is ranked 9th in the list, however she’s #1 in our books! We had the pleasure of shooting Kimi this past summer and really enjoyed getting to know the girl behind the strong, athletic persona.
Kimi won her first career World Cup medal (silver) in December, 2008 and was ranked 18th in the parallel giant slalom at the 2009 World Championships. She’s ranked 16th overall in the 2008-09 World Cup alpine snowboard standings. All this and beauty to match!
Watch for Kimi competing for Canada on home turf during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.
Check out Kimi’s gallery (featuring snaps provided by us!) on Sportsnet.ca.
