Canada has done it! With the women’s Olympic hockey team winning back-to-back Olympic championships and the men’s team recapturing the gold they claimed in Salt Lake City, sports enthusiasts across the nation will be celebrating double gold at the Vancouver Olympics. In commemoration of yet another Hockey Canada triumph, Fenn Publishing, in association with Hockey Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee, is printing a special edition, instant book that recounts the road to the gold medals.
CANADIAN GOLD?an all-encompassing guide to both the men’s and women’s Olympic hockey tournaments, as well as a preview of the amazing Paralympic sledge hockey team?is being released and shipped to retailers across the nation just days after the Vancouver 2010 Closing Ceremonies. The manuscript, which veteran hockey author Andrew Podnieks finished just hours after the Gold medal ceremony for the men’s ice hockey event, will tell the story of Canada’s two Gold medal hockey teams. Podnieks has been in Vancouver for the entirety of the games and has been planning the book since late fall of 2009. Featuring 184 pages of stats, biographies, game highlights, full-colour photography, and insider information, CANADIAN GOLD is a minute-by-minute look at the path to the podium.
