Have enjoyed the coverage!!!! LOTS

Anyone who would question how much work it takes to cover the event have never tried to do it themselves.

I tried to do it from a coach's perspective in 2009 and I did for two days and gave up!

Hopefully there will be this kind of coverage when it is in Ottawa next year!
