JIM: THERE BRIEFLY YOU SAW A HOCKEY PLAYER. PETER: DONNA WAS TALKING ABOUT CURLING, WHICH IS VERY POPULAR IN WESTERN CANADA. IT STARTED IN SCOTLAND. SOME PARTS OF CANADA WHERE I GREW UP, THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE TO DO IN THE WINTER. JIM: NOW THEY’RE GOING TO FORM THEIR IMAGE OF FIGURE SKATING. JIM: NOW THEY’RE GOING TO MOVE TO BOBSLEDDING, LUGE. I HAVEN’T SEEN ANY OF THEM MAKE A MISTAKE YET, EITHER. VERY INTRICATE MOVEMENTS. PETER: IN CALGARY LAST NIGHT, I SAW SOME ENTERPRISING CALGARIANS WITH A LUGE ON A STAND, AND YOU COULD HAVE YOUR PICTURE TAKEN ON IT. JIM: THERE, THE BOB AND LUGE RUN. STILL THE TORCH IS MAKING ITS WAY TOWARD THE STADIUM. WHO WILL IT BE? JIM: THERE GOES THE BOB DOWN THE LINE. JIM: NEXT WILL BE BIATHLON, THAT COMBINATION OF CROSS-COUNTRY RACING AND SHOOTING. LYLE NELSON PARTICIPATES IN THAT, WHO CARRIED THE AMERICAN FLAG. THE UNITED STATES HAS A CHANCE AT A SILVER MEDAL THIS TIME. JIM: LET’S TAKE A LOOK AND SEE WHERE THE TORCH IS. PETER: ON ITS WAY PAST THE UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY. JIM: SEVERAL WOMEN ON THESE LAST LEGS ARE CARRYING IT. PETER: THE CROWDS ARE SO EXCITED TO KEEP IT MOVING. JIM: WE’LL ALL REMEMBER THIS DAY.

NOW THEY’RE GOING TO MOVE INTO CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING. 300 HOURS THEY’VE REHEARSED. HARD TO IMAGINE WHAT IT MEANS TO THEM. THERE WAS ONE YOUNGSTER WHOSE FAMILY HAD TO MOVE TO BRITISH COLUMBIA. SHE SAID, PLEASE, CAN I STAY WITH MY AUNTS AND UNCLES UNTIL I’M IN THE OLYMPIC CEREMONY. SHE DID. NOW MOVING TO ANOTHER SPORT, SPEED SKATING. DONE A DE VERONA HAS SOMEONE DOWN THERE SHE WANTS US TO MEET.>>THANK YOU, JIM. YOU SPEAK OF IMAGES AND DREAMS. THIS IS WHEN THEY START, WHEN KIDS ARE 10, 11 YEARS OLD. I HAVE THE YOUNGEST
