Winter Olympics-Final Medal Standings

26 February 2018

The Russian question has hung over Pyeongchang.

The medals have all been handed out and the 2018 Winter Olympics from Pyeongchang, South Korea are a wrap.

South Korea women's ice hockey players on Monday bid a teary farewell to their North Korean teammates on the unified Korean team for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, a day after they marched in together at the closing ceremony.

At a colourful and cold closing ceremony, Ivanka Trump sat near a blacklisted North Korean general but unlike at the Games' opening, the North and South Korean athletes entered separately, waving their national flags.

The drones that amazed during the opening ceremony were back making Soohorang the mascot of the games and eventually into a heart to symbolize love and unity.

Two cases of failed drug tests by Russian athletes led the International Olympic Committee to rule that the Russian flag would not fly at the closing ceremony on Sunday.

It also featured traditional and contemporary Korean dance, music, puppets, a giant turtle - a sacred animal in Korea - and finished with a thumping dance party for the athletes.

Huawei Unveils New MateBook X Pro with Nearly No Bezels
While you might not notice the camera the very first time you look at the MateBook X Pro , you'll definitely notice the screen . My only other serious concern is that Huawei remained tight-lipped about one key detail: how much the Matebook X Pro will cost.

As viewers, we revel in their victories and feel the despair of their defeats and that allows us to share, in some small way, the Olympic experience.

The U.S. president's daughter and adviser said earlier Sunday that her visit to the Olympics had been "so incredibly inspiring".

Athletes from Russian Federation also proved strong in cross-country skiing, winning silver in three events and bronze in five others. 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.

The IOC voted Sunday not to lift the ban on the Russian flag and uniforms.

Team USA skier Lindsey Vonn, a three-time Olympic medalist, celebrated what may be her final Games in style, hitching a ride on snowboarder Nick Baumgartner's shoulders for the ceremony, and posing for pics with everyone from the Team USA's gold medal-winning men's curling team to shirtless Tongan flag bearer Pita Taufatofua.

It's Hard To Imagine How Armed Teachers Might Change Schools
A Twitter user whose profile said she is a Pittsburgh teacher posted a sign promising "to fight for my students and colleagues". Trump is calling the episode "a real shot to the police department" and says this "could have been prevented".

Still there were two positive drug tests. Marit Bjoergen won by almost two minutes to conclude her fifth and final Olympics with her eighth career gold medal, tying the Olympic record.

A few hours later, Bjoergen received her gold medal during the closing ceremony in the stadium from International Olympic Committee president Bach. Women's hockey also benefited in general with a thrilling six-round shootout for gold - the first in the women's gold-medal game.

The US won 23 medals, its fewest at a Winter Olympics since 1998, when it won 13. Bjorgen was their fifteenth gold medallist of these Games - with Germany managing the same number - but a total medal haul of 39 ensured they finished top of the Pyeongchang medal charts.

Trump spent part of her second day in Pyeongchang watching the US team compete in the bobsled competition. "This is a record in the history of the Winter Olympics".

The host nation ended the games in seventh place with 17 medals.

Compared to the Parade of Nations at the opening ceremony, the Parade of Athletes at the closing ceremony was created to symbolize all competitors coming together as one nation.

"I believe it is very important to maintain the mood for dialogue between the South and the North, even after the Olympics".
