On July 2, 2003, Canada's Olympic and Paralympic dreams came true. Vancouver was named as the host city for the 2010 Winter Games, winning by a mere three votes.

IOC President Jacques Rogge's words were heard across the country and around the world: "The International Olympic Committee has the honour of announcing that the 21st Olympic Winter Games in 2010 are awarded to the city of Vancouver."

2010 Legacies Now celebrated this momentous day.
