Sochi 2014 Olympic Update (Day 16)

The Olympics would officially end on Day 16 as the Closing Ceremonies would officially end the spectacular two-week display of winter sports. In the last day of the games the Canadians would take home the gold in the premier event of the games. They would beat the Swedes 3-0 in the gold medal hockey game while Russia would sweep the Men’s 50km Cross-Country race, and would take the gold in the four-man bobsled. They were the last few events in the Olympic program for another four years as Russia would say goodbye to the biggest sporting event in Russian history.

Countries continue to race to the end of these Olympics but the committees of many countries have a big decision to make before it is all over. Countries must decide one of the biggest honours in the Olympics as the closing ceremony flag bearer is still to be decided. Every Olympics each country decides which athlete will carry the flag in to the arena during the opening and closing ceremonies. Generally the opening ceremony flag bearer is an athlete that has put some time into their countries efforts. These are athletes that have been in the Olympics before and have done well for their country.
