THE QUEST IS GOLD COINTEST of OLYMPIC PROPORTIONS

Recommended Posts

It was 1980 and after a night shift I had driven out to a section of the Trans Canada Highway to watch and encourage a young man in his attempt to cross Canada, yesterday his parents were given the honour of carrying the Paralympic Torch during the Opening Ceremony, just would like to say how proud we all are of your son Mr & Mrs Fox, thank you having let us share him with us even if it was for a brief moment, his memory and legend will live forever in our hearts.

Congrats Ashallond!

I can't believe it, I turned the TV on last night and they did have some Para Olympic coverage of skiing but I think it was because there was an Aussie in it! Still cool to see ;) I think there may even be some sledge hockey on tonight :anibad:

Ok, looking at the numbers here is the scoop.

Team USA wins - 11 have the potential of winning; of those 11 - 3 are in the running of getting all the gold metal games correct. 1 will win a Inuksuk coin

But if Team Japan (who upset Canada) 0 win and no Inuksuk coin given away

 

GO Team USA :anibad:

hey I bought these coins to give away during the Olympics, I don't want to wait 4 more years ;)
