In what has been called the "first social media Olympics", athletes are still trying this new medium out. Two have already been booted out of the games for mis-tweets... both of which were deemed offensive.

On the Air/In the Air

The Afternoon Edition's Tory Gillis zipped off for a preview of the Queen City Ex-- and one of it's newest attractions.

She tested out the zipline, and she came back to the studio to tell Craig about her ride.

You can catch video of her zipline adventure on Tuesday night's CBC News Saskatchewan casts at 5:30 and 6. We'll post that video when it becomes available.
