"Bloggers around the world who would like to see the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, please give us a hand! A Gold Blogger will be selected from users who have posted heart-warming messages on the blogs (of any of these 5 athletes), or who have supported these athletes through their blogging and/or other social media activities. The selected “Gold Blogger” will be sent to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games to represent the online supporters by blogging about the athletes’ activities and competitive performances. The Gold Blogger will also deliver the online messages from the participators of the site to the athletes (subject to the conditions at the location). Your voices of support will encourage the athletes in their pursuit of their dreams and lead them to victory. So let’s share their passion!"

Here is the link if you'd like to enter and send some love and support to 5 amazing athletes.

Panasonic Vancouver 2010 Athletes' Blog. / "One Winter, Five Dreams."

"The five athletes we have chosen to introduce here have overcome a variety of adverse circumstances in seeking the opportunity to compete in the Olympic Games.
They may not be “star” athletes, but like every Olympic contender they have a dramatic story to tell. About having meager finances and putting one’s entire resources intro training. About battling the barrier of an aging body before even beginning to face one’s rivals in sport. About going to the Olympic Winter Games from a country without snowfall.
And like every athlete who aims for the Olympic Games, they each cherish a special dream in their hearts.
It is the strength to believe in one’s dream that makes it possible to keep on trying and overcome all types of adversity. We want to put these athletes in the spotlight and share their dreams and passion for Olympic competition.
Please add your comments to their blogs. Your voice of encouragement will cheer them on to pursue their dreams of Olympic gold. It will help them stay energized, motivated and focused on winning. In this way, you can participate in the human drama of making dreams come true and the thrill of victory.
The Olympic Games are a magnificent stage where athletes and their supporters from around the world can celebrate sports together regardless of national borders and cultural differences."
Here are the five athletes

Robel Teklemariam
Men's Cross Country Skiing

Kazuhiro Koshi
Men's Skeleton

Katharine Eustace

Tugba Karademir

Clyde Getty

Of course I'm entering the contest! It's a way for me to stop feeling sorry for myself and my inability to ski right now. (Refer to the post ski like a girl why am I smiling?). It gives me a chance to focus on someone else and give them much needed support and attention as they participate in something truly amazing the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. These five may not be the stars of the games but to me they are already winners. Best of luck to you all and I will continue to post and support each of you.
