Screaming fans welcome Shania Twain on torch run
Posted By Len Gillis
Posted 7 mins ago

Shania Twain jumps up smiling and waving as she enters the Hollinger Park in Timmins carrying the Olympic Torch.



Despite bitterly cold temperatures and a biting wind, Shania Twain wowed the hometown crowd in Timmins this evening as she ran the final leg of the Olympic Torch Run into the Hollinger Park and Fred Salvador Field. More than a thousand fans that endured the minus 30 wind-chill, screamed and cheered as the hometown singing star entered the field.

Twain, clad in the familiar white torchbearers uniform was clearly as delighted as her fans as she proceeded the final few metres to the stage, she stopped for a quick photo opportunity and jumped up and down, smiling and waving. Moments later, Twain ran onto the stage where she used the Olympic torch to light a ceremonial cauldron to kick off an evening of entertainment.

The official stage belonging to the torch run organizers could not be set up since the hydraulics were frozen. A massive television screen behind the stage was also a victim of the cold, as as the top portion of the screen was frozen and could not display a full image.

Twain was the last of ten runners involved in the Timmins portion of the torch run which began in South Porcupine at about 6: 14 p.m. and ended at the Hollinger Park at 7:00 p.m.

Once on stage, Twain described the experience as "pretty overwhelming." She admitted she could have enjoyed some milder weather

"In a way it just feels really beautiful to be back up north in the cold. I know that sounds crazy," she said.

"It wouldn't be Timmins," she laughed, "if it wasn't, you know, forty below with the wind-chill!" The appreciative crowd hollered and cheered their approval.

I think this is so fantastic," she told a master of ceremonies. "What it shows is the spirit of the people from the north to be standing out there on the road for all these hours in the freezing cold; all of you, it really does show your spirit. I am glad to be home. I am glad to a part of this."

I got a good picture of her running by. Will have to post it when I get home to ny. It was cold!!!!!!!!!! Shania looked great and she looks happy. Let's hope this means she is ready to get back to recording.

It was really great but also deadly cold! The temperature with the windchill was -40C!!! We were front row, Shania went by us on the left to get up to the stage...there were a tons of news crews and photographers, there will be plenty of pictures online, check also the main Canadian TV channels like CTV, to see the videos..The Canadian Press also interviewed us...I did not even bother to take out my camera, there was no way that it was going to work and by that time my fingers were not even moving! LOL! Shania stopped twice for the media to take good pictures of her, she gave a very moving speech of how she is happy to do this, she called it the highlight of her life..the crowd was fantastic to her: they loved her!
Clearly, Shania looked very, very happy, she is back to be herself, her real self how we knew her, and even greater than that she truly enjoyed the crowd that showed up for her: she is ready to connect again with the crowds of her fans. I am sure she will have a video of her run today at her Fan Club's website as well....
A great Shania moment, and I am getting really optimistic about the future...

Thousands cheer Twain, torch in Timmins
TIMMINS, Ont. - The Olympic torch arrived in Timmins, Ont., on Friday evening, held aloft by a hometown hero.

Shania Twain carried the torch the final 400 metres into Hollinger Park, cheered on by thousands of fans who braved searing cold to see the country music superstar in person.

Twain paused and waved to the crowd before bounding the final few metres onto the stage, where she lit the Olympic cauldron and passed the flame to the next torchbearer.

Twain called the experience the "highlight'' of her life.

An international superstar and multiple-Grammy winner, Twain was born in Windsor, Ont., but spent most of her youth in Timmins, honing her talents by performing in local bars and clubs.

Her 1997 record "Come on Over'' has sold more than 34 million copies, making it the best-selling album by a female artist of all time.

The torch continues its journey through northern Ontario on Saturday, making stops in a number of communities including Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.

Shania was extremely gracious: she made sure she ran slowly and stopped to wave to people on both side of her path to acknowledge all the fans there....she was fantastic!
