Figure skater Joannie Rochette has been chosen as Canada's flagbearer for the closing ceremony of the Vancouver Olympics. Rochette won a bronze medal, skating just days after the unexpected death of her mother in Vancouver.
The Vancouver Olympics and the medals race both finished in spectacular fashion for North Americans. The United States won 37 medals and Canada finished with 14 gold medals. Both are the best of these games and part of the greatest hauls ever at a Winter Olympics.
