The Winter Olympics are almost over as it is almost February 25th! This has been a very good Winter Olympics for the top 5 countries: Norway, Germany, Canada, Netherlands, and the U.S.A. Norway has 33 medals total, Germany has 24 medals total, Canada has 21 medals total, Netherlands has 16 medals total, and the U.S.A. has 16 medals total.
Some very talented U.S. olympians are:
Red Gerard – Won gold in men’s snowboarding slopestyle.
Chloe Kim – Won gold in women’s halfpipe in snowboarding.
Shaun White – Won gold Men’s Halfpipe in snowboarding.
In the Olympic Sport Curling, a member of the Russian team was caught using illegal substances during a drug test. This sparked up controversy, as the Russian team got 3rd place in mixed Doubles curling. Following up on the Russian doping curler, the Russian team had to give back their bronze medals, which is very disappointing. Norway ended up getting the bronze medals because Russia had to return them.
But now sadly it has all come to a close, and Norway has come out on top of the world. Nobody expected Norway to win this years Olympics, instead people suspected countries like: Germany, Netherlands, U.S.A, and OAR (Olympic Athletes From Russia) to win. Despite these countries not coming out on top, they did do very well in the Olympics.
The Olympics ending ceremony was once again a masterpiece. While being hosted in South Korea, of course they had to have KPop. But that was not all that was in the ending ceremony, KPop was just one of the many brilliant performances that appeared at the ending ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics. There were lots of singers there making it a very entertaining ending ceremony.
Now we can all look forward to the next Winter Olympics in 2022, in Beijing, China. But before that we have the 2020 Summer Olympics hosted in Tokyo, Japan to look forward to.
