10 Year Anniversary Celebration

A Celebration of Sport

10 years ago, Richmond and the Richmond Olympic Oval as a Venue City and host venue for 12 medal events at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. It was 10 years ago that we welcomed the world, sang the national anthem on the Canada Line with passion, carried the torch through Richmond and collectively ignited a flame of Canadian pride that has been burning strong ever since.

In the ten years since the True North, Strong and Free proudly united wearing the maple leaf, the Oval has become a living legacy of the Olympic Games. Post-Olympic Games, the Oval has become a true sport and fitness destination. Featuring facilities for sports like basketball, climbing, volleyball, hockey, rowing, table tennis, hockey and more, athletes at every stage of their sport and fitness journey come to the Oval to learn, train, push their limits and exceed their goals.

Live the legacy and join us February 21st – 23rd for a celebration of our 10 year Olympic Games anniversary and of all things sport.
