After seeing the RBC and Coca-Cola Olympic commercials, Sandra Beck, Senior Pharmacy Technician at PMH, was inspired to apply to become of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic torch bearers. She took her chances with the online application in which applicants explained how they would make Canada green.
After explaining her greening plans and three months of paperwork (which involves torch bearers being cleared by the RCMP and the VanOC Committee) Sandra was notified that she was one of the lucky individuals who will carry the Olympic torch on its way through Canada.
"I'm proud to be representing a part of Toronto and to play a part in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics," says Sandra, whose favourite Olympic sport is the Giant Slalom. "I've been calling myself an Olympian ever since I found out!'
Sandra will carry the torch on Thursday, December 17 at 6:12 a.m. for 300 metres in Whitby, Ontario. She plans to run a slow jog to ensure she embraces the moment as long as possible. You can watch a live feed of Sandra and other torch bearers on:http://www.ctvolympics.ca/torch/follow-torch/index.html
Sandra's favourite Olympic moment? Watching the Crazy Canucks in the 70's. They were four Canadian skiers who had their own wild flare, but who took the downhill skiing world by storm.
