Vancouver is getting a double dose of Olympic action this year. After dispersing the Winter Olympics crowds, the International Paralympics‘ athletes have descended on the town with equal ambition and competitive spirit.
And the Canadian Embassy in DC is giving us a second helping of their now famed sports-night soirees as well.
Ambassador Gary Doer, gracious host of viewing parties for the Olympic Winter Games, invited guests to kick-off the Paralympics with a party for the Canadian sledge hockey game Thursday night at the Embassy.
Huge viewing screens, Wii consoles, and cheering for the able disabled athletes will continue with periodic viewing parties throughout the games’ 64 scheduled events.
