Apolo a cutie ;)

So today is the last day of the Olympics :(((( A sad time for all but it has been an amazing Olympics!!!! Apolo Ohno now has 8 medals...the most a Winter Olympian ever had. Lindsey Vonn got her gold in downhill. Bode Miller got gold in Super-Combined. USA got their gold in 4-man bobsled. Hannah Kearny got gold in moguls. Evan Lyschek got gold in figure skating. Charlie White and Meryl Davis got silver in ice dancing. The Women's hockey team got silver. Bill Demong got gold in the Nordic-Combined. Shaun White got gold in men's halfpipe. Seth Wescott got gold in the men's snowboard cross. Shani Davis got gold in the 1000 m. J.R. Celski got bronze in the short track 1500 m. So far we have 36. Soon to be 37. The men's hockey team is competing agasint Canada for the gold-medal. They'll get either gold or silver. The US will have then the most medals they have ever gotten in an Olympic games. It has been so exicting to see all the performances. And not only the US's. There have been stellar performances from the other countries as well. Alexandre Bilodeau got Canada's first gold medal on homesoil. And he did it for Frederic. Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue got gold for Canada in ice dancing. I have never seen such a beautiful performance. Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao finally got their gold in Pair's skating. In real life they're a married couple. And forever in our thoughts, the tragedy of luge racer Nodar Kumaritashvili, death. In spite of this Georgia marched in the opening cermony, remembering their athlete, with black bands around their arms. It gets me excited and wants me to be the best I can possibly be in anything. The Olympics may end today, but their memory will always follow. I already can't wait for the next Olympics. :)
