Here is the pledge she spoke just prior to the torch lighting ceremony:

"On behalf of all the athletes, I pledge to compete in the spirit in which the games were founded, a celebration of competition, honour, and friendship.

"I pledge to strive to be the best I can be. To rise to the challenges I meet here, and when I return home. I pledge to push beyond what is expected of me, and extend my limits in sport, academics and community.

"And I pledge to rise to the challenges I face, and share with my competitors my victories and my friendship."

Cross country skiing events get started with the classic technique interval distance today at 10 a.m. at Beatton Provincial Park.
