THE GAMES

Despite tight (if not overbearing) security following the World Trade Center attack less than six months earlier, the SLC games were considered extremely successful. Dramatic gold-medal wins by Canada over the US menís and womenís hockey teams and an upset performance by U.S. figure-skater, Karen Hughes provided loads of excitement. Lead by hugely improved performances in bobsledders, luge and skeleton, the United States team shattered its previous medal totals by posting 34 in SLC. What would the Olympics be without some controversy? The gold medal in pairs skating was shared by Canada and Russia when obvious judging bias forced the IOC to intervene.
