Wente on the Olympics....

There have some incredibly fantastic stories coming from the Olympics....we should be proud...
No matter how cynical you are, you can't help being moved by the triumph of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the sweet-faced young ice-dancers who've skated together since they were 6. Theirs is a classic tale of sweat and sacrifice, but it's also a family story too, of parents who spent endless hours in cold rinks and remortgaged their houses, and would do it all again, because they love their children. Long after you forget how many medals we won, you'll probably remember the story of Alexandre Bilodeau and his greatest inspiration, his disabled brother Fred, and of Joannie Rochette, the skater who gave the performance of her life just days after her mother's sudden death. What Canadians will remember is not how many of our athletes won the podium. It's how they won our hearts.
