The Simpsons' prophetic curling call, and Russians' gold-medal finale

South Korean President Moon Jae-in touting these Olympics as the "peace games", used the event to extend an olive branch to North Korea.

Outside Olympic Stadium, just before the ceremony, more than 200 anti-Pyongyang protesters waved South Korean and USA flags, banged drums and held signs saying "Killer Kim Yong Chol go to hell".

Unfortunately, the team members didn't get the correct medals right away: When the team members were given their medals, they said women's curling instead of men's.

She arrived on Friday (February 23), having been confirmed as the leader of the U.S. delegation at the Closing Ceremony, and attended several events to support American athletes.

The past 17 days of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics were packed with incident and raw emotions.

Praising the PyeongChang Olympics, the event organiser said that the Games brought the world together "in peace and harmony", reported the Yonhap News Agency.

Bach also took the opportunity to congratulate Canada on the country's record 29 medals in Pyeongchang.

Family is a compelling reason for four-time Olympian Kershaw, who wants to stay closer to home instead of spending the winter racing overseas. As part of the ceremony, the Winter Games were "handed off" to Beijing, which will host them in 2022 after staging the 2008 Summer Olympics. And it's worth noting the Russian men's hockey team, which won the gold medal today, defied the sanctions, sang the Russian anthem at the medal ceremony, drowning out the Olympic anthem that was playing at the same time.

Veteran snowboarder Jasey-Jay Anderson made history by becoming the only Canadian to compete in six Winter Games.

Pyeongchang 2018 President Lee Hee-beom preceded Bach in making a speech, saying the athletes from North and South Korea "built friendship". The Netherlands, clad in the country's vibrant orange and blue, continued its speed skating supremacy with all their 20 medals in the sport, eight of them gold, while Hungary won its first ever Winter Games gold in the men's 5000m speed skating gold.

North Korea's willingness to talk was the latest conciliatory move by the reclusive state during the Games, where the two Koreas formed their first joint Olympic team, in women's ice hockey.

As athletes demonstrate their fighting spirit and a strong will to challenge human limits, journalists present the beauty and spectacle of sports to the global audience in a timely manner, said Liu.

After the South Korean flag was raised, Olympic medal ceremonies for the final cross-country events were held.

Apparently, Sharpe galvanized the whole Comox Valley with her bid for Olympic gold, with numerous viewing parties at private homes and local eating establishments in that Island community.

It was her fifth medal at the Pyeongchang Games, and her 15th overall.

South Korean protesters tried to block Kim's motorcade to the closing ceremony earlier in the day.

He also said he derived hope from the 35 athletes who finished fourth through sixth over the two-plus weeks in South Korea.
