Airport Reception

There was a large group of people who waited patiently at the Victoria airport yesterday. Patiently, because the original flight from Beijing to Vancouver was delayed 2 hrs, and thus people missed their scheduled connector flights to Victoria.

As it was, the Olympic athletes were coming back to Vic in a couple of waves, with the triathletes (Simon, Colin, Lauren, Carolyn) being on the 5:25 arrival. Joel was stuck in Vancouver for bit longer, arriving 2hrs later I think.

Colin got me a sweet Beijing Hat, as well as a T-shirt! I was pumped!

Silken Laumann was at the airport, to greet the rowers I'm guessing
