Sachsen in Vancouver

"Saxony's long and very successful tradition in winter sports calls for an adequate representation at the Winter Olympics. I fondly remember the friendly atmosphere at the Saxony House in Turin. Canadians are just as enthusiastic about winter sports and are very open-minded about Europeans. This is why the Winter Games in Vancouver provide the perfect setting to effectively represent each of Saxony's facets. Get excited by the warm-hearted, innovative and athletic spirit which the region is famous for and pass it on to fans and athletes from all over the world."
