The Olympic Games

Posted on: February 18, 2010

From a pink tassel on a leotard to Shaun Wight ripping it up on the half pipe, the 2010 games has been eventful. The weather has been up and down for the skiers, the men ice skaters having the most ridiculous outfits, all has added up to the winter games in Canada. The U.S. having fourteen medals, five  being gold coming up in lead. Following behind the U.S. is Germany with ten medals. Some of those medals being in half pipe snowboarding. Shaun White already winning the gold in his first run and then going for his second run. Landing an one of a kind jump that no one has ever done, just seals his second gold medal. The saddest part of the games, is knowing how much those athletes have trained and devoted to the sport. Then seeing them fall or wipe out on the last stretch. On the other hand, to see someone’s devotion pay off with a gold is priceless.
