Share your Favourite Olympic Moment and Win a Pair of Mitts!

An Olympic Original

The anniversary of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games is just around the corner. Arguably one of the most iconic souvenirs from those games were those red mittens that everyone was wearing. People stood in line for hours in hopes of buying  a pair, and many were disappointed. And good luck trying to find a pair now. That design has been discontinued, and although The Bay is currently selling  something similar, you aren’t going to find any Olympic rings on them.

Lucky for you we’ve got a couple of shiny new pairs to give away, still with the original Olympic tags and all! To be eligible to win them you simply need to post a comment below sharing your favourite Olympic moment.

Congratulations to Michelle and Kenneth for winning the Red Mittens Giveaway!

Those Red Olympic Mittens – a Great Christmas Gift!

Original issue (not those second-rate knockoffs...)

Remember those red mittens that were a must-have item during the 2010 Winter Olympics? People lined up for hours in the hopes of snagging a pair. Well we squirreled a few pairs away and will be giving them out to our readers over the coming weeks.

To be eligible to win the first pair simply post a comment below saying what you want Santa to bring you for Christmas. We’ll pick a random winner and notify you by email.

Giveaway – those popular Olympic red mittens!

Red Mittens

As everyone saw during the Olympics, those red mittens were the must-have souvenir of the games. Sadly no more are being produced, and people searching for red mittens have been forced to look on eBay to get theirs. Well lucky for Inside Vancouver readers, we have a few pairs to give away!

To be eligible, we want you to share your favourite Olympic moment(s) with our readers. Whatever it was that helped define the Olympics for you, or a moment that you will always remember, we want to hear about it. Simply post your comments below to be eligible. We will choose our favourites and contact the winners by email (so be sure to include a working email address!)

Update March 22 – We’ve selected the winners and sent them an email. Check your emails and if you’re a lucky winner be sure to reply with your mailing address. Thanks to everyone for sharing their Olympic moments. Be sure to check back as we will be doing more givaways in the near future!
