The Olympics haven't started yet, but the Olympic celebrities are already arriving. Katarina Witt and Elizabeth Manley had what looked like a highly improvised reunion on the ice at Robson Square on Feb. 7. The gold medalist and the silver medalist from the 1988 Olympics in Calgary waved, twirled, laughed and even shared a brief ice dancing moment together at Robson Square in front of an impressively large crowd. If this many people turn out to see Olympians 22 years later, imagine the melee of seeing the actual competitions starting in a few days. Can we say excitement?
Oh, if you're in town, the skating at Robson Square is a good diversion. The rink isn't huge, but it's free. And if you aren't accustomed to balancing on blades, they have special "ice walkers" for all ages to keep you on your feet.
Ice skating - falling = good fun.
