.... das olympische Feuer leuchtet schon mal. Die XXI. Olympischen Winterspiele wurden vom 12. bis 28. Februar 2010 in Vancouver, der größten Stadt der kanadischen Provinz British Columbia, ausgetragen. Verschiedene Wettkämpfe fanden auch im Wintersportort Whistler sowie in den Vororten Richmond und West Vancouver statt. Sowohl die Olympischen Winterspiele als auch die daran anschließenden Winter-Paralympics wurden vom Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC) organisiert. Kanada war 2010 zum dritten Mal Gastgeber von Olympischen Spielen, nach den Sommerspielen 1976 in Montreal und den Winterspielen 1988 in Calgary. Bereits 1976 hatte sich Whistler, wo die meisten Wettkämpfe in den Schneesportarten stattfanden, erfolglos um die Ausrichtung beworben. siehe: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympische_Winterspiele_2010 The 2010 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XXI Olympic Winter Games (French: Les XXIes Jeux olympiques d'hiver) and commonly known as Vancouver 2010, informally the 21st Winter Olympics, were a major international multi-sport event held from February 12 to 28, 2010, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with some events held in the surrounding suburbs of Richmond, West Vancouver and the University Endowment Lands, and in the nearby resort town of Whistler. Approximately 2,600 athletes from 82 nations participated in 86 events in fifteen disciplines. Both the Olympic and Paralympic Games were organized by the Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC), headed by John Furlong. The 2010 Winter Olympics were the third Olympics hosted by Canada and the first by the province of British Columbia. Previously, Canada hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Quebec, and the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Winter_Olympics Quelle: Wikipedia

Canada Place is a building situated on the Burrard Inlet waterfront of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the home of the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel, Vancouver's World Trade Centre, and FlyOver Canada (a virtual flight ride which replaced the world's first permanent IMAX 3D theatre and which ceased operation on October 1, 2009). The building's exterior is covered by fabric roofs resembling sails. It is also the main cruise ship terminal for the region, where most of Vancouver's famous cruises to Alaska originate. The building was designed by architects Zeidler Roberts Partnership in joint venture with Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership and DA Architects + Planners. Canada Place can be reached via the SkyTrain line at the nearby Waterfront Station terminus or via West Cordova Street in Vancouver. The white sails of the building have made it a prominent landmark for the city, as well as drawing comparisons to the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia and the Denver International Airport in Denver, Colorado.[citation needed] The structure was expanded in 2001 to accommodate another cruise ship berth and in 2009/10, for the 2010 Winter Olympics, Canada Place served as the Main Press Centre.

English Bay, Vancouver

12 May 2016 9 12 422
English Bay (deutsch Englische Bucht) ist eine Bucht vor der kanadischen Stadt Vancouver. Sie liegt unmittelbar westlich des Stadtzentrums und ist Teil der Straße von Georgia. Im Nordosten liegt der Burrard Inlet, im Südosten False Creek. Der unmittelbar beim West End gelegene English Bay Beach ist der beliebteste Strand in der Nähe des Stadtzentrums. Andere Strände am Ostufer sind Sunset Beach, Second Beach und Third Beach. Am Südufer befinden sich die Strände Kitsilano Beach, Jericho Beach, Spanish Bank und Locarno Beach. English Bay ist Schauplatz zahlreicher kultureller Veranstaltungen. Die Celebration of Light ist ein weltbekannter Feuerwerk-Wettkampf, der jeden Sommer während zwei Wochen stattfindet (üblicherweise die letzte Juli- und die erste Augustwoche). Es handelt sich dabei um die größte Feuerwerkveranstaltung der Welt. Am Neujahrstag findet jeweils der Polar Bear Swim statt (Hunderte von Schwimmern stürzen sich in die kalten Fluten), im Sommer die Gay Pride-Parade. In der Bucht ankern oft große Frachtschiffe und warten auf eine Passage in den Burrard Inlet, wo sich die Hafenanlagen befinden. Die rechtliche Stellung der Bucht ist bis heute nicht geklärt, denn sie wird als Teil des traditionellen Gebiets der Squamish nach wie vor beansprucht. Das 2005 entworfene Logo der Olympischen Winterspiele 2010 stellt einen Inuksuk dar und trägt den Namen Ilaanaq (Inuktitut für „Freund“). Ein ähnlicher Inuksuk befindet sich seit der Expo 86 am Strand von English Bay. English Bay is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, west of the downtown peninsula and False Creek. It consists of the south side of the Burrard Inlet, extending from Point Grey in the southwest to Prospect Point in the northeast. English Bay Beach, near the city's West End residential neighbourhood, is the most popular sunbathing, swimming, and sunset-watching beach in the downtown Vancouver area. Other downtown beaches facing English Bay include Sunset Beach, Second Beach, and Third Beach. Along the south shore of the bay lie Kitsilano Beach, Jericho Beach, the Spanish Banks beaches, and Locarno Beach, while on the North Shore are Ambleside Beach and various smaller cove-beaches in the city of West Vancouver. English Bay beaches are all major tourist attraction to visitors all year long, with the peak season being late summer. The Vancouver Seawall runs all the way around English Bay from Stanley Park in the northeast around False Creek at Point Grey facing the Strait of Georgia in the southwest. This is a favourite destination for walkers, runners, bicyclists, and roller-bladers. (Note: the Seawall is one-way for cyclists and roller-bladers, running counter-clockwise from just east of Lions Gate Bridge to Third Beach.) English Bay Beach is host to a number of public events. The Celebration of Light is a fireworks competition that is held for two weeks every summer (usually the last week in July and first week in August). While this competition often struggles to secure funding, it has successfully run since 1997 and is the largest off-shore fireworks display in the world.[citation needed] Each winter it is the host of Vancouvers' annual Polar Bear Swim and each summer the Vancouver Pride Parade and Festival is held on English Bay Beach.
