2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics: Gold and Overall Medal Counts

2010 Winter Olympics Medal Count

The 2010 Winter Olympics!!

America sits in first place in the overall medal count with 14 awards that include 5 gold, 3 silver, and 6 bronze

Shaun White – Double McTwist 1260 at the 2010 winter Olympics

Shaun White broke out the Tomahawk, the most dangerous trick ever invented!

Mr. White, who became the first person to win back-to-back gold medals in the halfpipe, performed his much-hyped, signature move called the “Double McTwist 1260,” which involves two off-axis backflips while doing 3.5 full rotations, all in one jump. The trick is so advanced (no other competitor in the event even attempted it) that merely landing it was enough to ensure Mr. White victory
