The Winter Games 2010 had a dramatic ending. The two weeks of exciting and record breaking performances of the world’s best athletes have come to an end. Today could be a disappointment for the millions of fans who tuned in every night to watch their countrymen perform their amazing strength, beauty and control.

The Olympic games which were held in Vancouver, British Columbia were full of joys and sorrows, triumphs and tears accompanied by victories and defeats. We were lucky to see the start of the world stage competition for young athletes and the end of the careers for the others. The audience witnessed the greatness of the physical and human spirit.

The host, Canada, won 14 gold medals which is the most any competing nation ever received. They were followed by Germany, US and Norway. The US gathered the most number of medals totaling 37.

Whether they won or lost in the competition of their chosen sport, the Olympic experience made a huge impact in the lives of every extraordinary athlete who participated in the Winter Games.
