Olympic Torch carried on Dragon Boat and Voyageur Canoe on Final Day
Olympian Hugh Fisher carried the Olympic Torch on a dragon boat on part of the final leg of the Olympic Torch Relay that has traveled from sea to sea to sea and all across Canada. He passed it on to Olympian kayaker Kamini Jain in the middle of False Creek, as she stood on a voyageur canoe.
I was part of the 6 dragon boat and 6 outrigger canoe accompanying flotilla, that followed the torch bearing boats. We all stood for a photo op with torch bearers Hugh and Kamini, after it was over.
