The United States, or U.S.A., won the most medals. We feel excited and splendid about it! Did you know that Canada received the most gold medals? Kazakhstan had the fewest medals. They only won 1 silver medal. It was in the Women’s Biathlon. All of the countries tried their hardest to win medals. Germany won 30 medals and the United States won 37 medals total. How many do you think China won? If you want to find out how many medals the other countries won, look on the website to find out…

The next Winter Olympics is in Russia. Make sure you watch it! I hope next time the U.S.A. wins the most gold medals!!! The U.S.A. is the best!

This is some cool facts that we learned watching the Olympics. Two of the people in our class liked Short Track Speed Skating the best. This one guy, Apollo Ohno, would be in last and comeback and win! It was great. It was really fantastic and he’s the best. We saw the couple’s figure skating and they were dressed as cowboys. It was really awesome and we loved how they danced to the music. One of the couples were from U of M. They won a silver medal. We felt a little surprised because they were only college kids. One person liked the one person figure skating. We saw Plushenko skate and he did really sweet jumps. And he spun so fast, it looked like he was going to throw up! When I saw the beginning of curling, I was amazed how they worked together! I was surprised at how fast they swept and got it toward the middle. Cross-Country Skiing is probably the hardest sport. It was amazing how theycould keep skiing for an hour and thirty minutes!

I hope you enjoyed watching the 2010 Winter Olympics as much as we did!
