Closing Ceremony Pyeongchang 2018 Performers, Lineup, Live Stream, TV Schedule

Tonga's Flag-Bearer, Pita Taufatofua, Enters Closing Ceremony In Clothes, Then Takes Them Off

"We were also agonisingly close in the men's slopestyle and women's curling, with more athletes than ever before in the medal zone or just outside of it", Nicholl added.

The segment of the ceremony dedicated to handing off the Olympic Games to Beijing featured a brilliant light show complete with rollerblading pandas and the unveiling of the 2022 logo.

Bjørgen's five-medal haul at PyeongChang 2018 was more than any other athlete achieved. 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.

The IOC had banned Russian Federation from competing in the Winter Games because of state-sponsored doping before and during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Russian spies hacked into the systems used by authorities at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, US intelligence sources have claimed.

The most-watched Winter Olympics of the last 20 years were the 2002 games in Salt Lake City, which averaged 31.9 million. In fact, the International Olympic Committee has banned the country from competing in the Games.

In the first week of the Games, the weather took center stage as high winds wreaked havoc with the schedule, ending the multiple gold medal hopes of United States ski star Mikaela Shiffrin, who leaves Pyeongchang with one gold and one silver. Ester Ledecka made Olympic history by winning two gold medals in two different sports.

The Winter Olympics also saw new champions crowned, with a few teenagers coming to the fore.

Great Britain's sole gold medal came from Lizzy Yarnold in the skeleton, as the 29-year-old successfully defended the title she won at the 2014 Sochi Games. That's well short of the 37 medals the American execs targeted, according to an Associated Press report.

But the biggest cheer was reserved for the unified North and Korean team, who entered the arena together for the second time in 17 days.

Officials in PyeongChang acknowledged that the Games were hit by a cyberattack during the February 9 Opening Ceremonies but had refused to confirm whether Russian Federation was responsible.
