Twenty Eight Days of February #28

Today the sun sets on the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. We will remember that the USA led the field in total number of medals. We may forget that the IOC went overbudget by 5 billion dollars. Participants from around the world covered the globe from Albania to Uzbekistan. The winter olympics got off to a tough start with the death of a luge competitor on the opening day. The days continued without snow for the first four days of competition which caused serious setbacks for the games. Bobsledders traveling at light speed were no match for the slow pace of the curlers. There were stories of insurmountable achievements, endurance, controversy and love. And so, on to the Summer Olympics 2012 in London.
