Sporting pride

Canadians around the world were the last celebrating at the end of the Vancouver Winter Olympics, as they won gold in the final event - ice hockey - yesterday. They also made up for their early bad luck with an excellent haul of gold medals (14, compared with Germany’s 10 and USA’s 9) by the end of the games.

The Winnipeg Free Press
is amongst one of many publications and sites reporting on the celebrations, describing how expats in London turned Trafalgar Square red and white, and Canadian soldiers posted in Afghanistan cheered as fighters made a victory run in the skies overhead.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again - there’s nothing like sporting competitions to bring out the national pride of expats!
