On the 106th and final day of the flame's cross-country relay, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger carried the torched through Vancouver streets, bringing everyone that much closer to the opening ceremonies today for the 2010 Winter Olympics
This morning (February 12), the Terminator was just that: The man who carried the flame to the place where it will retire (for now), a close to a long race of hope that began on October 30, 2009 in Victoria, British Columbia and that made the rounds throughout this great country north of the U.S. border.
The Governator's part took place in famed Stanley Park, where fans waved Canadian flags as the politician/movie star carried the Olympic torch from the dawn into the morning light with great pride.
Arnold's hand-off to track star great Sebastian Coe, chairman of the London 2012 Summer Games, brought even more cheers from the crowd who were thrilled to watch as Schwarzenegger gladly gave up that job to another worthy team mate.
Now take a look at the smile on the Governator's face as he takes this final stride through the Canadian's city's glorious Stanley Park.
Meanwhile, more on the Olympics, Vancouver and this celebrity hot spot as the games begin today, February 12, 2010, in Vancouver, Canada.
