It was a sea of blue and yellow as Team Ukraine received an exciting welcome at Vancouver International Airport last week. Richmond, British Columbia has a large Ukrainian community and many of them were waiting at the airport to greet their hometown heroes.

 

Some Ukrainian women donned traditional dresses and headware, while presenting the Ukrainian athletes with their signature braided bread called kolach. Father Edward Evanko was also present to bless the 41 Ukrainian team members competing in the Winter Olympic Games.
