Olympic Pin Trading with “The Pin Man”

I produced and shot the story of Sid Hopkins during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Olympic pins originated in Athens, Greece at the 1896 Summer Games as a way to identify the athletes, but for Sid โ€œThe Pin Manโ€ Hopkins it began 100 years later during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Sid does not trade pins for profit. He has a much greater purpose. In this video see how Southern Baptist Volunteer Sid Hopkins uses pin trading as a tool to share the gospel of Christ with thousands of Olympic spectators.
