- During the Olympics, the Richmond Olympic Oval will be the busiest of all the venues as they host twelve medal events. The Oval has been praised for its architectural design, world class amenities and 400-metre speed skating track make it the perfect venue for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games Speed Skating competitions. 8000 lucky spectators will be able to watch the fierce competitions on the ice, while the rest of us watch from home. Located just 14 kilometers South of downtown Vancouver, accessibility to the location is a breeze. If you're not staying downtown Vancouver, the Richmond Olympic Oval is very close to Richmond City Centre and is just across the Fraser River from Vancouver's International Airport, YVR.
The Richmond Olympic Oval also offers public figure skating, swimming, gymnastics, aerobics and rowing opportunites that are open to the general public.
