Olympic silver medalist for bobsled, and current WinSport community relation's manager, Helen Upperton addresses the crowd gathered around the cauldron at Canada Olympic Park on Thursday. "Many host cities have allowed their facilities to fall into disrepair once the Olympic flame is snuffed out," says Upperton. "That cannot be said here in Calgary."
