Medal Ceremony

Each night of the Winter Olympics, the medal winners of the day are presented with their medals in a medal ceremony. This is a different format than at the Summer Olympics in which they have the medal ceremonies right after the medals are won. Last night, Shaun White was presented with his gold medal for the men’s snowboarding halfpipe. It was an emotional night as he was awarded with his third Olympic gold medal, making him the most awarded Olympic snowboarder in history. It was great to see all the medalists overcome with emotion as they represented their countries in the Olympic games. The crowd was there to support the athletes even in the cold weather. Seeing the athletes each be awarded their medal was a once in a lifetime experience and particularly seeing Shaun White who is so recognizable in snowboarding was a moment that I will never forget.
