The Olympic Torch Relay

by Evangeline Brown
Captain William Spry Library Adult Learning Program

I think the Torch Relay was a good experience for Nova Scotia. It only happens once in a blue moon.

Sidney Crosby was very exciting to see carrying the Torch. He was very excited to see all the people who showed up to greet him. He didn't expect it.

Children and adults alike were very proud of Sidney carrying the Olympic Torch. It was a big change from playing hockey.

I watched the program on T.V. and found it was very interesting and educational to know that Canada supports the Olympics.

There will be skating, ski runs, and other sports. I can't wait for it to start and I hope Canada wins a lot of medals. I know they can do it! It will make all Canadians proud.
