Rebecca Brayton: She has been called the fastest woman on ice. Hi! I'm Rebecca Brayton and welcome to WatchMojo.com. Today, we're speaking with Olympic gold medal speed skater Catriona Le May Doan.
Male Speaker: Le May Doan has got to win this pass, and is going to win the gold medal.
Rebecca Brayton: How were you first informed that you are one of the Cauldron lighters for the 2010 Olympics?
Catriona Le May Doan: It was January 19, and because I was a first torchbearer in Canada with Simon Whitfield. People have been talked about names and I thought yeah, you know what, I don't even know if I've been involved in ceremonies. Then John Furlong phone me on January 19th, and said, will you be one of the lighters of the Cauldron and so was aesthetic.
Of course, we practice; we practice in the middle of night. No problems and then the opening ceremonies happened and mine didn't lift. It was test of patience. I got so many emails from people who were saying you handled this so well. So that was very nice.
Rebecca Brayton: Wayne Gretzky, Steve Nash, Nancy Greene, Rick Hansen, I mean what is it like to be chosen among the elite of Canada's athletes?
Catriona Le May Doan: You know it's interesting, because everybody is pretty normal people. I mean as normal as athletes are, but you know it's -- we don't put ourselves in any different category. I was super emotional when Simon and I carried the torch. That was sort of when I first came to Canada. I thought it would be really emotional during the ceremonies.
The one moment was right before we started, and Rick Hansen gave me a hug. He said I'm really happy to be doing this with you. I said, oh, I'm happy here to go. But for having 60,000 people in a stadium, it felt very intimate. That was pretty cool feeling.
Rebecca Brayton: I read at least a while back, you were concerned about the future of sport in Canada after the 2010 Olympics. Are you still in the same place?
Catriona Le May Doan: I am so proud of the power of the games. I believe that we've seen the impact in just four years what putting money into sport and development of sport. I mean the youngsters that have been inspired from 2010 and the old people that have been inspired from 2010. I am not as concerned anymore, because I think that as a country, we were all on the same side and saying look, what it can do for us.
