Teams pack up and leave after Pyeongchang Olympic Games
After weeks of colourful celebrations and high adrenaline performances, athletes and their team members were packing up and departing from their olympic villages on Monday (February 26) as the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games drew to a close.
The Gangneung Olympic Park, which just a day ago had been packed with people, was almost empty on Monday.
South Korea brought the curtain down on its “Peace Games” on Sunday (February 25), with winter sports athletes dancing and singing together at a vibrant closing ceremony, though there was little warmth between dignitaries from the United States and North Korea.
International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach paid tribute to the athletes, saying they were an example to the world.
