Olympic Winners – 2/18-2/20

Posted on: February 22, 2010

It was a very exciting weekend at the Olympics! The U.S. has been pulling out all the stops, working hard to come out with more medals than ever before. The last time the U.S. held any sort of high record for medals won was back in 1932. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t remember those games! As of yesterday, the U.S. holds 24 medals, seven of which are Golds.

In addition to this exciting news, Apolo Ohno is now the most decorated U.S. medalist with seven Olympic career medals. Last week, he one-upped the former title holder, Bonnie Blair. Way to go Ohno! Bode Miller is taking the Olympics much more seriously this year and won his first career Olympic gold medal for the super-combined on Sunday. Go Bode!
