Closing ceremony of 2018 Winter Olympics

The South Korean four-man bobsleigh team competes in the first of four heats during the Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics at Olympic Sliding Centre in PyeongChang Gangwon Province on Feb. 24 2018

We know that Western media are planning pseudo-investigations on the theme of "Russian fingerprints" in hacking attacks on information resources related to the hosting of the Winter Olympic Games in the Republic of Korea.

Other gilded American stars of the closing ceremony included the USA women's hockey team, who took gold in a stunning shootout over Team Canada on February 22.

The Russian men's team defied International Olympic Committee rules by belting out the anthem at their medal ceremony following Sunday's 4-3 overtime win against Germany in the gold-medal game. Though authorities in charge of the Games refused to confirm Russia's direct participation, they did acknowledge that a cyberattack hit the Opening Ceremonies.

With 110 World Cup victories, 18 world titles and more Olympic titles to her name than any other female athlete, Norway's Marit Bjørgen had long since established herself as the queen of the snow by the time PyeongChang 2018 got under way.

"We were also agonisingly close in the men's slopestyle and women's curling, with more athletes than ever before in the medal zone or just outside of it", Nicholl added. The team came back from a 2-1 deficit to force a shootout, where Jocelyne Lamoureux scored in the 6th round to give the USA the win. Kassel is not the only connection Madison has to the in the Olympics.

Eight out of the 25 athletes on the bronze winning men's hockey team are from Ontario including Cody Goloubef, Chris Kelly, Chris Lee, Eric O'Dell, Justin Peters, Derek Roy, Christian Thomas and Wojtek Wolski.

Four gold medals were awarded on the final day of the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins made history this year as they became the first Americans in history to win a gold medal in cross-country skiing. What makes it more special is that one of the Olympians is from McFarland: Matt Hamilton.

John Shuster captained the team to glory with a 10-7 win over Sweden to earn a famous win.

There were also surprises on the slopes, too.

Shaun White secured his third Olympic gold in the men's snowboarding halfpipe in Pyeongchang. Norway had a fantastic outing at the 2018 Winter Olympics, finishing with 39 medals overall.

The one thing the past two weeks has reminded us is that we are all connected.

"I want to congratulate the British Olympic Association and all the athletes, coaches and support staff on their efforts, as well as everyone in the governing bodies and home country sports institutes who work so hard".

And that's something worth celebrating.
