Please check out February 12-28 for complete footage from the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games.

Olympics Opening Day Montage
Go Canada Go! See a Cisco Flip Video collection of moments from this year’s Opening Day, including a run with the torch bearer, and zipline snowboard and hockey players. Ten points for attribution on the torch bearer; ten more for an accurate count of how many other Flip cameras you can count in this Opening Day video montage, captured on Flip Video.

Chinatown Spring Festival
This year’s Olympic Games coincided with the annual Vancouver Chinatown Spring Festival, on February 14th near the Chinese Cultural Centre. The festival bursts with color and sound, in celebration of the Chinese lunar year. This snippet, captured on Flip video, shows a different kind of team effort: Making a dragon dance.
