Olympics Closing: Wonderful Vancouver

The Closing Ceremony of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics at BC Place drew the usual tens of millions of viewers and replenished for some time municipal and corporate coffers in the Canadian province.

Many countries participated, including top contenders USA, Russia, Germany, and Canada. Not to mention a surprising team from South Korea. Similar to previous editions, this year saw a massive presence of athletes from the northern hemisphere and a scarce showing of their southern hemisphere’s counterparts.

Olympics officials need to broaden the field professionally and technically if the competition is to survive financially in the near future. Talks are already ongoing about the possible cancellation of Women’s Hockey games due to poor performance.

Eyes will now turn to the next edition in Russia. It’d be interesting to see how profitable the Canadian organization turned out to be and how Olympics officials will thoroughly review the next game logistics, especially amid the current economic crisis.
