City salutes Olympic Torch Relay participants and supporters

Days 81, 82 and 83 of the Olympic Torch Relay passed through Calgary this week on the way to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympic games.

The City of Calgary would like to thank our citizens for their volunteer efforts to make this run a success and the people who lined the streets to support the 12,000 runners who braved the wet and cold as the flame made its way across Canada.

Here is a video of City employee Dan Phelps running the torch. Dan was one of 10,000 volunteers at Calgary's '88 Olympic Winter Games and it's people like him who made this Olympiad's Torch Relay a success.
