Putin raised suspicions of a visit when he parked outside Canada House to visit U.S.A. House, home of American athletes during the Games.

When Putin did come to the COH, Canadian athletes, including speed skater Muncef Ouardi, as well as family members and fans, were able to take pictures of him posing with Marcel Aubut, the head of the Canadian Olympic Committee.
