VANCOUVER, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - Before Wang Bingyu and her Chinese women's curling team arrived in Vancouver for their shot at 2010 Winter Games gold, they spent time in Canada last fall exploring Toronto and Niagara.

Photos and a video package (http://ctc.pathfireondemand.com/viewpackage.action?packageid=253) are available, rights-free for ALL MEDIA, of the extra-ordinary Ontario tourism experiences Wang and her team enjoyed.

The video package includes interviews with Wang discussing her thoughts on Canada (in English), plus interviews with Wang and teammate Liu Yin in Mandarin, as well as footage of the Chinese women's team visiting the St. Lawrence Market, Toronto Islands, the Hockey Hall of Fame, and Niagara Falls by helicopter and boat.
