The 2010 Olympic Winter Games come to an end tonight. Nordic combined gold medalist Billy Demong (Vermontville, N.Y.) will lead Team USA into the stadium for the Closing Ceremony, and the flame will be passed to Sochi, host city for the 2014 Games.

The latest updates on Team USA
USA I with Steven Holcomb (Park City, Utah), Steve Mesler (Buffalo, N.Y.), Curt Tomasevicz (Shelby, Neb.) and Justin Olsen (San Antonio, Texas) captured the gold medal in four-man bobsled - the USA’s first four-man gold since the 1948 St. Moritz Games.

The U.S. added to its record medal haul when the U.S. team of Brian Hansen (Glenview, Ill.), Chad Hedrick (Spring, Texas) and Jonathan Kuck (Champaign, Ill.) won silver in the men’s team pursuit in long track speedskating.

With the medal count for Team USA standing at 36 for the 2010 Games, the team is poised to add record medal No. 37 today as the U.S. Men’s Hockey Team faces Canada in the gold medal game.
