The olympics is one of the events in world history. The fact that the world can put aside war and fighting is amazing. My favorite event is the mens downhill. The olympics this year are in Vancouver. My favorite athlete is Apolo Ohno. The opening ceremony included tap dancers and tribes from Canada. When the torch was supposed to go up only three poles went up. The torch lighters who I knew was Steve Nash and Wayne Gretzky. Steve Nash lit the torch then flew to Dallas where he would be playing in the NBA all-star game. America has the most athletes with 216 and the most medals so far, Germany is good too. When I went to Alaska we stopped and stayed in Vancouver for 3 days and we saw the winter olympics were going to be there. We were confused because it was the same day the Beijing olympics started. I love all olympics.
