The PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games ended on February 25th after two weeks of intense, fun and entertaining competition. All competitors from all countries showed off their extraordinary talents during their events.

The final medal count was Norway with 39 total medals, Germany with a total of 31 medals, Canada with a total of 29 medals. The United States came in fourth with a total of 23 medals. Norway again got the most gold medals of the entire games tied with Germany. Canada with 11 gold medals and the United States with 9 gold medals. During the games their were many inspiring and incredible stories.

Shaun White won the gold medal in the snowboarding halfpipe after disappointing in the Sochi games and being injured for a long time. Chloe Kim at just 17 years old won the women’s snowboarding halfpipe. Another 17-year-old Red Gerard won a gold medal for Slopestyle.  However, one of the most inspiring stories of the games was the United States women’s hockey teams. They defied all odds by beating their rivals the Canadians for the first time since 1998. The game was extremely close and hard-fought on both sides but the United States women ultimately prevailed in a last-minute shoot out. Another closely watched competition was the figure skating competition. In the men’s competition Yuzuru Hanyu was the winner, with Shoma Uno in second and Javier Fernandez in third. The women’s competition ended with Alina Zagitova in first, Evgenia Medvedeva in second and Katelyn Osmond in third. In the pairs skating it was an incredible story for the winners. Aliona Savchenko had tried for many years to win a gold medal at the Olympics but she never managed to accomplish that goal. Until this year when her and her partner Bruno Massot pulled of an incredible free skate to finally take gold. In the ice dance event returning champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir came back one last time to win gold. With Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cieron from France in second and the United States Alex and Maia Shibutani in third. Another unexpected win came from curling. The United States men won gold after defeating the Switzerland team.

The 2018 Olympic Winter games was a huge success managing to bring all countries together for two weeks of hard fought sport competition. The event ended with the closing ceremony and the Olympic flag being handed off to China for the next winter Olympics in 2022.
