The competition has got better and better. And old-timers tell me that the home town enthusiasm here is unprecedented compared to past Olympic Games.
As every gold medal performance builds on the previous one, you see and feel the pot-pourri of nations burst with pride. It feels very like Manchester during the Commonwealth Games 2002 but with red maple leaves.
There are also points to ponder on what I'd like to see at Live Sites or in our communities at Games time in 2012. Taking the cue from Vancouver, it's all about pride in their country; about displays and pavilions for each Canadian state; it's red mittens everywhere; it's about exhibitions from each part of British Columbia; how streets, parks, squares and live sites have overflowed with people; and, as well as the emotions displayed in ceremonies and competition by athletes & audience alike, it's about 'Go Canada Go!'
And the questions are... What will make us Brits come out and celebrate? What will we shout? What will we wear or wave? I hope that when Great Britain & Northern Ireland fill the Live Sites at Games time in 2012 we can make ourselves as proud and as engaged as the Canadians are right now in their Games.
Is great to hear that back home our Live Sites are already being brought to life, with the chance to take part in some 'winter sport activity' as well as enjoy all the action - live and in replays: no doubt audiences are enjoying watching Amy Williams and her brilliant gold!
