Canada welcomed the world to the 2010 Winter Olympics “with glowing hearts,” a phrase taken from the Canadian national anthem and used as the motto of the 21st Winter Olympics. The games took place in Vancouver, British Columbia, from February 12 through 28, 2010. The opening and closing ceremonies were held in BC Place Stadium.
 
The Vancouver Olympic Committee embraced the culture of the “First Nations” for symbols for the games. The First Nations refers to the native people of Canada. Ilanaaq the Inunnguaq became the Games’ logo. An Inunnguaq is a statuette made of stacked stone to resemble a human form, while Ilanaaq is the Inuit word for friend. The mascots for the games were also drawn from First Nations lore. Miga is a mythical sea-bear, half orca (killer whale) and half Kermode bear. Quatchi wants to be a hockey goalie, but is unsure if they allow Sasquatches to play.
 
Athletes competed in 86 events from 15 different sports, including the new Olympic sport, Ski Cross. In Ski Cross, the entire field of skiers races downhill together in the first heat, avoiding obstacles and each other. Then they advance in groups of four skiers before a winner is determined in this timed event. In all, more than 5,500 athletes participated in the third Winter Olympics held in Canada.
