    Cheltzie Lee was so darned cute, so petite next to the other Aussie athletes. I saw Tessa & Scott, Cynthia, Patrick Chan and Annabelle Langlois.

    Yeah Evan said he was beside Angela Ruggiero (from the US Women's hockey team) during the parade.

    Did anyone else recognize Barbara Ann Scott by her hair before her face was shown? Her hairstyle is as iconic as she is.

    Tanith and Ben were definately there and I think I read Johnny and Evan were there too. I'm not sure, but I thought I saw Mirai Nagasu.

    Thanks to everyone who posted links! I especially enjoyed the one of Mirai and Frank (in the lower left corner/US. team photo).

    I saw Sasha on the big screen, I did spot Rachael, Meryl and Charlie. Julia and Lambiel were easy of course as they were their respective countrie's flag bearers (what an honor!).

    I saw Stephane, Kevin and Julia as the Flag bearers. The German eurosport guy mentioned that Hongbo Zhao was the Chinese flagbearer, but I was just in the kitchen and when I jumped back to the TV the camera was somewhere else, so I didn't see him. I also missed Zaretsky, but I saw Lindemann, Nobu and Tugba (yes, it was her - also confirmed by the eurosport guy).

    And I agree with those who say Barbara Ann Scott is gorgeous - I wish I would look that great when I'm half her age!

    Saw most of the above. Also saw a shot of one of the Swedish skaters, whose name I'm about to butcher, but I think it's Adrian Schultheiss.

    On Sunday Feb the 7th we received a call from the Gen. Secretary of Turkish NOC informing us that Tugba will be the flag bearer during the Opening Ceremonies. After confirming if we can announce it we shared our happiness and pride with you through this website and her blog. Today, Wednesday Feb the 10th, half an hour before Tugba's leaving home for airport and while she was getting interviewed with some other TVs on the spot, she received several calls from some Canadian and American TVs asking why her name is removed from the flag bearers list. With that confusion and shock we tried to reach the Gen. Secretary and we got a call an hour later from the Athletic Affairs GM confirming the change. We are dismayed more for hearing it from international TVs instead of hearing from our officials first. We have nothing more to comment on this matter and we sincerely apologize for raising your hopes unnecessarily.
    I thought Tugba was supposed to be the flag bearer for Turkey but the above quote says what happened.
