Citius-Altius-Fortius

who can tell me what that means?

Today is one of my favorite days. The start of the olmpic winter games. This year the games are in turin, italy; but it is being called the torino games. Like some of you i imagine, I will be glued to the tube for the next fortnight. (that's what bob costas always calls the games). My TiVo's are primed and ready. Tonight, when the broadcast of the opening ceremonies begins, i will be watching anxiously to see how the torch will be lit this year.


The 2006 Olympic Winter Games emblem portrays the unmistakable silhouette of the Mole Antonelliana. It is transformed into a mountain, among crystals of ice, where the white snow meets the blue sky. The crystals come together to form a web: the web of new technologies and the eternal Olympic spirit of communion among peoples.
