2017 Vancouver Sevens

March 15, 2017 by admin

I was very lucky this past weekend to be allowed to photograph this years Vancouver Sevens from field level at BC Place. It is beyond exciting to be that close to this kind of action. Remember we are talking about the best 16 Men’s Rugby Sevens Teams in THE WORLD!!  They are all fast fit and furious and hungry for the wins.  The extra part of the show is in the stands! The fans (all 38,00 0 who attended each day) are awesome.  Many come dressed in crazy costumes and are energy filled and cheer their guts out for every team.  Of course they cheer loudest for Canada and Fiji the two local faves!!  This event is special to me for another reason as well  One of the stand out players on Team Canada played football for me when I use to coach High School Football and this event is the only time I get to see him in action LIVE!! He did not disappoint as he score 3 trys during the tourney.  In the end our Home Team did not walk away with any hardware but they took extra long in their walk around the stadium after being eliminated. Looked like anyone wanting a picture or autograph got just what they wanted from their fave player!! I am already looking forward to next years event.
