Kalyna Roberge Celebrates Her Newest Medal

Kalyna Roberge Celebrates Her Newest Medal

I was lucky enough to get an invite to a party on saturday night at the Commodore Ballroom sponsored, strangely enough, by lululemon and Budweiser. It was a really great event with a lot going on. There were DJs and suspended dancers, ice furniture and icicles, free drinks and women wearing nothing more than paint. The mayor apparently showed up.

Oh yeah, and olympic athletes. Medal winning olympic athletes.

As far as I could tell, there were eight or nine medallists there who are responsible for ten or twelve medals. Most were Canadian but there was at least one Korean and two Americans. The Americans were the only ones that I personally saw wearing their medals. Unfortunately, at about 4am and after shooting over 400 photos at the event, my battery had just died and I wasn't able to get photos of them or their medals. Another photographer there had grabbed a photo of the Korean wearing his medal earlier.

What I did get, though, are photos of, and conversations with, some of Canada's figure skaters and short track speed skating teams.

As far as I could tell, none had their medals with them, all were dressed casually and hanging out just as any group of friends would. Nothing presumptuous, just relaxing and enjoying the moment. A very well deserved moment.

This first photo is of Kalyna Roberge (left) posing with a friend of mine. Vancouver gave her her second olympic silver medal, she won her first in Torino. She was also the 2007 500m world champion. Not bad for a 24 year old.
