Hodori, the mascot of the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.

Lady Gaga's evil twin.

First winter closing ceremony to not have an opening balls-up to laugh at since 2006. 

Well, that interlude segment was weird. According to Claro, the turtle is a messenger from earth to Gods.

Nordic domination at the medal award. :lol: didn't we heard Norway anthem as well in Sochi?

Interesting. CBC just flashed up a little commercial. They're broadcasting until the 2024 Paris Olympics. Didn't know that. After that, I wonder if CTV will grab the rights.

Yes, we did - Marit Bjorgen won there, too. And we heard the Russian anthem there - played for the triple winners in the men's 50 km, Cheatsky, Dopinsky and Fraudsky.

Hopefully next IOC president will remove that "Olympic champion in yaddayadda" crap. Literally nobody cares.

I didn't know until recently that Bach insists on the mention of his Olympic champion title everytime he is introduced at the Games. It only emphasises for me what a prick he is.

While I have nothing against the London 2012 anthem arrangements, I hope they give us fresh air in Tokyo and make new arrangements. It's getting a bit boring hearing them in 2-3 Olympics already.

If you think it's bad now- in another couple of Olympics, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, USA (via Alaska) and Canada may well be the only nations in the world where cross-country skiing is possible.
