The Olympic Oval ice makers are heading to Vancouver for 2010. Kameron Kiland, Olympic Oval director of operations, and Mark Messer, Olympic Oval facility specialist, have been selected to create the Olympic ice surfaces in Vancouver for the long-track, short-track and figure skating events.
"This is a real honour and reflects well on the ice makers we have here at the Olympic Oval," said Messer.
No word yet on any hidden goodies they will place in the ice surface akin to the loonie in 2002 in Salt Lake and the gold bar in 2006 in Italy. A good Canadian symbol like a live goose or beaver could work--and would provide some David Blaine-esque entertainment for the closing ceremonies.
