Closing ceremony of 2018 Winter Olympics

Closing ceremony of 2018 Winter Olympics

The NBC-only primetime average viewership of 17.8 million, meanwhile, "beat by 82% the average of the combined broadcast networks to rank as the most dominant Winter Games on record", it said in a news release February 26, one day after its Olympics broadcast coverage ended.

Organisers will again look to entertain a global audience from the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium to commemorate what has been an incredible Games replete with new records, shock results and tear-jerk moments. This included worse-than-expected showings in sports like figure skating and Alpine skiing. Hosting the Winter Games would be a tremendous fillip for winter sports in Australia, which are really the poor relations of sport in this country. In Pyeongchang Team USA was far behind Norway (28), Germany (20), Canada (17), and the Netherlands (13), respectively.

Great Britain picked up five medals in South Korea - one gold and four bronze - to reach the target set by UK Sport and eclipse the four medals earned at Chamonix in 1924 and at Sochi in 2014. Austria, Japan and France remained tied with the USA at ten total medals.

In remarks distributed by organizers before the closing ceremony, Bach had said: "We have seen here how sport can make the world a better place".

Nathan Chen in figure skating detrimentally missed a complicated jump in the men's singles, moving him out of the placement running.

According to Variety, the 2018 Pyeongchang games averaged 19.8 million viewers per night across NBC, NBC Sports and NBC Sports Digital's streaming platforms.




Norwegian ski queen Marit Bjørgen crowned her last Olympics with another gold medal that made her the most-winning Winter Olympian of all time.

Chloe Kim, daughter of a South Korean immigrant and US snowboarder, makes history.

On the women's side South Korea took "Team Kim", with their members sharing the same surname, to their hearts as they qualified easily, winning eight of nine games. Not only did she win gold for the USA, but she is also the first female snowboarder in history to land a back-to-back 1,080-degree spin.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) delivered the message at its final meeting before the Olympic cauldron was extinguished on Sunday, in a reminder of one of the biggest criticisms of the Olympic movement: monumental waste. Canada was third with 11 golds. After historic wins for the United States late in the games, Team USA finished fourth with 23 medals total, including nine golds.

"Iron Man" Yun Sung-bin won the home nation's first gold medal in men's skeleton at the Games and Asia's first medal in a sliding sport, but it is unclear if his success will inspire his compatriots to follow in his tracks and start using the centre. Team USA fought hard, pulling themselves up from their initial losses. Because of these allegations, the International Olympic Committee decided not to lift its ban of Russia's Olympic team.

The Olympic flag has arrived after its journey from Pyeongchang 2018 at the Great Wall of China.
