Maclean's celebrates "The Greatest Games Ever" with its biggest issue - ever

Currently on newsstands and at almost 200 pages, the Commemorative Olympic Issue is packed with in-depth reporting, humour and commentary - plus 300 extraordinary colour photos

TORONTO, March 4 /CNW/ - For 17 days in February, we were the centre of the world. Canadians not only put on a fabulous show for the record 3.5 billion people globally who watched, but more than ever before, they relished the spotlight.

The XXI Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver brought out the best Canada has to offer, including stellar athletic performances - and a rarely seen, countrywide display of pride and patriotism. This unifying spirit, along with Vancouver's magnificent hospitality - and a record-breaking 14 gold medals for Canada - were among the reasons Maclean's editors declared these "The Best Games Ever."

To capture and celebrate the triumph that was Vancouver, Maclean's (which had 12 journalists on-site in Vancouver and Whistler throughout), put together this Commemorative Issue, published within days of the Games' closing. The result is 196 pages of the stories and personalities that defined the Games, plus commentary from columnists Andrew Coyne, Paul Wells and Scott Feschuk. Throughout, a total of 61 pages of colour photographs capture the highs and lows, the humour, and the moments of inspiration at the heart of these, the Best Games Ever. The Commemorative Olympic Issue, Maclean's largest in its 100-year history, will be on newsstands for the next three months, selling for $9.95.
