More Torch Pics

I got a call from the Canadian Press assignment service last night asking if I could spend the day covering a famous British athlete who was in town to do the torch run. Matthew Pinsent is a four time gold medal rower, and a really nice guy.

An idea of how crazy things got. The guys in the track suits are RCMP security, who took some real pleasure in pushing us around. There were TV crews from CTV (the host broadcaster), the BBC (Matthew's a sports journalist now), and a private crew from the Canadian Tourist Commission (my client).

Matthew handing over the flame to former Whistler Mayor Drew Merideth.
