Sixteen days after the opening ceremony was held inside the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium in South Korea, the 2018 Winter Games are no more. Norway ended the tournament as the winning country with a total of 39 medals (14 gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze), while the United States finished fourth (behind Norway, Germany and Canada, respectively) with 23 medals. America garnered 9 gold, 8 silver and 6 bronze (including one by Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, whose appearance in the PyeongChang Games may be her last in the Olympics). The Russians who weren't banned by the International Olympic Committee this year gathered 17 medals (2 gold, 6 silver and 9 bronze) under the Olympic Athletes from Russia banner.

The 2022 Winter Olympics will be back in Beijing, China...who hosted the Summer Games in 2008. I'm lookin' forward to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan...and definitely the 2028 Summer Games in Los Angeles (only 30 miles from where I live)! Carry on.
