Gannon noted that in contrast with the more formal opening ceremony, the Olympic closing ceremony is much more of a "party", with the stress of competition in the rearview mirror.
Eight out of the 25 athletes on the bronze winning men's hockey team are from Ontario including Cody Goloubef, Chris Kelly, Chris Lee, Eric O'Dell, Justin Peters, Derek Roy, Christian Thomas and Wojtek Wolski.
The Winter Olympics also saw new champions crowned, with a few teenagers coming to the fore. However, the US still had some incredible moments during these winter games.
Officials in Pyeongchang acknowledged that the Games were hit by a cyber-attack during the February 9 opening ceremony but had refused to confirm whether Russian Federation was responsible.
The attack resulted in some disruption to the Games, including loss of internet access and disruptions to broadcast systems and ticketing services, though it ultimately amounted to little more than temporary inconvenience.
However, it was Yang Tae-Hwan, 13-year-old prodigy, who nearly stole the show from more seasoned performers at the closing event on Sunday night. The skiers and snowboarders accounted for 15 of the 23 total medals for the U.S.at the 2018 Winter Olympic games. Russian athletes who had proved they were clean were allowed to compete as Olympic Athletes from Russia under the neutral Olympic flag, but the Russian flag and Russian anthem were banned from the Games. However, the International Olympic Committee also noted that the country's future at the Olympics will depend on whether it determines the Russian government had any role in doping athletes in Pyeongchang.
Tessa Virtue from London and Scott Moir from Ilderton won two gold medals in figure skating, making them the most decorated figure skaters in Olympic history.

The intelligence, which has not been publicly affirmed, is consistent with reports from private-sector analysts who have said they saw signs Russian Federation had targeted the 2018 Olympics. Some officials also aired their concern that Russian Federation may also attempt to disrupt today's Closing Ceremonies.
"Two weeks ago, at opening ceremonies, we met and a friendship began". "We will help the Koreans as requested".
The country, banned from this year's Olympics following evidence of state-sponsored doping (and a conspiracy to cover it up), preemptively announced that it did not hack the Pyeongchang infrastructure.
"Development of router malware is extremely costly, and Russian Federation would likely use it only in locations where it contributes to accomplishing a high-value goal", said Williams.
This is not the first time that Russian Federation got involved with Olympic Games sabotage.
The delegations officials believed that the positive performances and results by Japanese athletes in Pyeongchang would boost the country's athletes toward the Pyeongchang Paralympics next month and the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. They then publicly posted the information of some noteworthy US athletes including Simone Biles, Elena Delle Donne, and tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams.
