1. "Crocodile Mile" on ice
After being slowed by an injury late in the women's team pursuit semifinals, Germany's Anni Friesinger-Postma did the only thing she could think of to cross the line in time. Suddenly mimicking a child diving on a water-soaked piece of plastic on the front lawn, Friesinger dove, kicked and swam her way across the line to narrowly defeat the U.S.
2. This way to the gate
In the final Alpine event of the Games, Americans Bode Miller and Ted Ligety had unpleasantly short days, collectively staying on course for less than 30 seconds of the first run. Miller still ends his Games with three medals, but Ligety walks away a disappointing 0-for-4 in Vancouver.
3. Attention: K-Mart winning
Canada's Kevin Martin, the 2002 Olympic silver medalist and 2008 world champion, came into Vancouver as the favorite to win gold on home ice. He responded by going a perfect 11-0 and claiming Canada's second consecutive men's curling gold with a 6-3 win over Norway.
4. Two first names, one gold medal
Jasey Jay Anderson was on the scene when snowboarding made its Olympic debut in 1998, but had never won an Olympic medal despite reaching the World Cup podium 25 times in his signature event, parallel giant slalom. On Saturday, the 34-year-old Quebec native broke through for gold in his fourth and final Olympic appearance.
5. Holcomb breaks 62-year drought, dances youthfully
The U.S. had not won an Olympic men's bobsled medal since 1948, and had the added challenge of facing a driver (Germany's Andre Lange) who had never lost a race at the Olympics. But Steve Holcomb and the U.S. "Night Train" sled of Steve Mesler, Justin Olsen and Curt Tomasevicz finally toppled Lange and the U.S. men's gold medal drought, then celebrated with the strangely catchy signature move known as "The Holcy Dance."
