According to CBC
"Canada won 24 medals – seven gold, 10 silver, seven bronze – to shatter the previous record of 17 set at Salt Lake City in 2002. "
"Canadian Olympic officials are hoping to do even better at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. The goal is to win 35 medals and finish atop the medal standings."
There were times during the closing ceremonies I had to stop knitting to watch, especially during the flying acrobats and the fireworks... and I loved hearing Andre Bocelli sing! I'm sad that it's over but so proud that Canada performed so well at the Olympics. Can't wait until Vancover 2010!
