The Olympic Games have begun!
Huzzahnians are following all events with interest, but we are paying particular attention to the figure skating pair of Anabelle Langlois and Cody Hay. Our reason? Our student teacher, Mr. Laurie, is a former Canadian national figure skating champion and he often shared the podium with Cody when they competed together. We are learning a lot from Mr. Laurie about the challenges and rewards of putting your skills on the line.
Last night Anabelle and Cody were brilliant in the pairs short program, achieving their personal best. What a thrill that must be for them!
This week we will be having our own Olympic opening ceremonies as well as many cultural and sporting events–stay tuned for our reports!
