Olympic Athletes: Roberto Luongo | Vancouver 2010

I find ice hockey fun. Trying to put the puck in the other team’s net while trying to stop them from scoring on you. I am a big fan of Roberto Luongo and hope that he helps Canada win the gold medal this year.

Roberto is currently a goaltender with the Vancouver Canucks, a team in the National Hockey League(NHL).He is thirty years old and was born on April 4 in1979. He grew up in the city of St.Leonard, Quebec and he speaks three languages: English,French and Italian. He is a big man, weighing 206 pounds and stands six foot three inches in height.

During his NHL career, he has played for the New York Islanders and the Florida Panthers,before joining the Canucks. With Vancouver, he wears the number one on his jersey and is unique among goaltenders, being one of the few who have ever been chosen as team captain.

Roberto has played in many international hockey tournaments. He has played for the Canadian Junior Team on four occasions and his team won one silver medal and two gold medals during these competitions. He also has previous Olympic experience. He played in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin, Italy. He has been selected to play for Canada at this year’s Olympic Games in Vancouver. Roberto will share goaltending duties with Martin Brodeur and Marc-Andre Fleury. Continue reading

Sylvain’s art – both  traditional and contemporary – springs from his Abenaki heritage.

His visit is part of a wider exploration of questions like:

What is art?

What is art for?

Why are there so many different styles of art?

Which type of art is “better”?

Who invented art?

 

Stay tuned this week for students blogging about his visit!
