Several members of our police force are competing in events such as pistol, karate, archery, hockey, cycling, biathlon, soccer, rifle, 5K race, and the Grouse Grind. About 10,000 athletes representing 55 countries are competing in the Games—it’s a huge international event!
If you’re interested, the opening parade of athletes kicks off tonight, Friday July 31, at Creekside Park by Telus World of Science at 5 p.m. It’s easily accessed by transit: it’s located right between Main Street Station and Stadium Station!
Check out the official website for more info on the opening, as well as for details on the Games events. The Games close on Sunday August 9.
