Like i mentioed before, I have really enjoyed the 2010 Winter Olympics Games. And I was thinking what were my favorite highlights from the Winter Olympics Games. Here are five of my favorite highlights:
Amanda Bird – February 27, 2010 The Night Train team was welcomed to the finish by train whistles and chants as the U.S. crew added Olympic Champion to their World Championship and World Cup titles.
WHISTLER, British Columbia (AP) — Steve Holcomb never flinched.
Not when tasked with ending a 62-year drought for the United States in sliding’s marquee race.
Not when trying to navigate the world’s most treacherous track.
And not when Germany’s Andre Lange valiantly tried to hang on to his Olympic title.
Holcomb handled it all Saturday, driving USA-1 to the gold medal in four-man bobsledding, the first American pilot to do so since Francis Tyler at St. Moritz in 1948. By winning, he cemented the status of his famed “Night Train” sled and push team of Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler and Curt Tomasevicz as sliding’s best.
Even though The U.S. Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey Team fell 3-2 in overtime to rival Canada, Team USA brings home a silver medal in the men’s ice hockey events.
Whistler (AFP) – Olympic veteran Bill Demong capped the United States’ impressive Nordic Combined campaign at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games by winning the large hill gold medal on Thursday.
Fellow American Johnny Spillane took silver, his third of the Games, with Austria’s Bernhard Gruber claiming bronze.
I had the chance to visit Vancouver in 2007. What a beautiful city it is. I would love to have another chance to go visit there.
I liked this commerical that played during the 2010 Winter Olympics Games: P&G commercial dedicated to all moms for everything they do.
