“For the glory of sport and honor of our country,” athletes from thirty nations converged on Squaw Valley in 1960 to compete in twenty-seven events as part of the eighth Winter Olympics .  Squaw Valley, part of the Sierra Mountain range was the stage for the first return of the Winter Olympics to the US in 28 years.

I haven’t been able to watch as much of the 2010 Olympics as I would like to, however I am looking forward to hockey. A few more of my found images here.

Total Medal Counts for the VIII games as follows (gold, silver, bronze, total).

1 Soviet Union 7 5 9 21
2 Germany 4 3 1 8
3 United States 3 4 3 10
4 Norway 3 3 0 6
5 Sweden 3 2 2 7
