VANCOUVER – Stephen Colbert, who has been critical of Canada and the access U.S. athletes are being given to the Olympic speedskating oval, is coming to the Vancouver Winter Games.

Colbert is coming to the Vancouver Winter Games and has accepted the City of Richmond’s offer to be the Olympic Oval Ombudsman. He made the announcement on his satirical comedy show The Colbert Report Thursday night.

He said he has no idea what it means to “ombud,” but “as long as it requires no effort from me, I proudly accept.”

What the comedian didn’t do, however, was don the ombudsman’s official uniform – the baby-pink toque that Richmond had sent to him.
