Olympic News 2010 Training in Gaylord, Mi

Practice, Practice, Practice.

Training, training, training.  Time to get up- close and personal with the athletes at the Otsego Ski Club in Gaylord, MI.  Winter Olympics only happen every 4 years and it is a blast to watch them work out and practice the sport.  I will be back photographing some of the night training on Thursday 2-4-10.

Some Olympic Facts:

The Official Olympic Flag
Created by Pierre de Coubertin in 1914, the Olympic flag contains five interconnected rings on a white background. The five rings symbolize the five significant continents and are interconnected to symbolize the friendship to be gained from these international competitions. The rings, from left to right, are blue, yellow, black, green, and red. The colors were chosen because at least one of them appeared on the flag of every country in the world. The Olympic flag was first flown during the 1920 Olympic Games.

I think I got it!!!

It’s nine days out before the 2010 Olympics start in Vancouver, Canada.  I spent the day with four different countries in training at Otsego Ski Club in Gaylord.  What a great day to be out in the winter weather and photograph the training of the half pike snowboarders up close and personal.  They were a blast to watch and I wish they all could win.  There are more pictures posted on my FB page.  Find me at Photography By Blair.
