The Vancouver effect

Like most kids in the Vancouver area, Sarah Potomak grew up idolizing the Vancouver Canucks. But when February 2010 rolled around, Potomak, who was 12 years old at the time, became passionate about another squad – Canada’s National Women’s Team. The 2010 Olympic Winter Games took place in her backyard and the excitement, pride and passion displayed by millions of Canadians over those two glorious weeks made a lasting impression.
