Video(s) Of The Week - Winter Olympics Begin This Friday!

By Meera Dolasia on February 8, 2010

This week, over 2,000 athletes from over 80 countries will make their way to Vancouver, British Columbia, to participate in the 21st Winter Olympic Games, which will be held from Feb 12th-18th.

The host city has made a tremendous effort to make their visitors feel as comfortable as possible with some beautiful accommodations and other amenities. And, what is even more amazing, is the fact that these buildings are amongst the most environmentally friendly in the world. Here is a look at where the athletes will be spending their 'spare' time relaxing in between their events.

Also, for those of you not familiar with the town of Whistler, a glimpse inside the beautiful resort town, where most of the competitions will be held.
