Vancouver Winter Olympic Games Comments Off on About This Site

 

Hundreds of thousands of international students annually pass through Vancouver, one of the most popular destination cities in the world for language and academic studies. During the 2010 Vancouver/Whistler Olympic Games, these students, many of whom will have the opportunity to view events including athletes from their own countries, will be a big part of the wider Olympic story.

 

We wondered what would happen if we combined these students’ love of sport and love of technology, so we’re sending them out into the streets and stadiums of Vancouver to tell their own Olympic stories. Most are armed with nothing more than a smartphone or a handheld video camera, so we’ve built a platform through which they can tell their stories in real time. This site is that platform.

 

We hope you’ll drop in often during the Olympic Games to participate in their story as it develops.

 

This initiative is proudly sponsored by CSLI Vancouver, uniting the world with English.
