via Mass Live:
Mitt Romney is heading back to the Winter Olympics.

The man who lead a revival of the scandal-plagued 2002 Games in Salt Lake City will be a guest of honor at the 2010 Games in Vancouver.

Spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom said Thursday that Romney and his wife, Ann, will be in Canada from Friday through Monday.

From Deseret News:

Romney retells a familiar story [in 'No Apology'] from the Olympics about the appearance in the opening ceremonies of the tattered flag recovered from the ruins of the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack. As the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang the national anthem, a gust of wind filled the flag and lifted it in the hands of the athletes holding it on Rice-Eccles Stadium field.

"It was as if all those who had died for America's liberty had just blown into the flag," Romney quotes U.S. speedskater Derek Parra as remembering.
