Welcome back to the LAT Olympics blog as it shifts from the Beijing Summer Games of last August to the Vancouver Winter Games, set for Feb. 12-28 of next year. Instead of Ticket to Beijing, it now is Ticket to Vancouver.
We will be posting throughout the year on Olympic news, but particularly as it relates to the Vancouver Games. All of the Beijing posts can be accessed through the "Beijing Games" category link in the right rail of the blog.
Many of our Summer Games bloggers will be back for the Winter Games, including LAT columnist Helene Elliott and Philip Hersh, a veteran of Olympics coverage who writes for the LAT and the Chicago Tribune.
Many of the features created for Beijing will still be accessible, including photo galleries and videos.
Though we will be updating the look of this blog as we go, you can catch Olympic news right here. That will include blogging from the World Figure Skating Championships next month by LAT staff from Staples Center.
