Atlanta Gets Its Curtain Call
Olympic Closing Ceremonies The Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta came to a close Sunday night, after two weeks of athletic competition between 197 countries and over 11,000 athletes -- the most ever in an Olympic Games. The Games closed with International Olympic Committee president Juan Antonio Samaranch praising the city of Atlanta, but notably failing to call the game as "the greatest in Olympic history" -- a phrase that has become routine in his Closing Ceremonies speeches.


Columnists on the Games
Michael Wilbon Michael Wilbon (pictured) praises the stellar defense played by the U.S. women's basketball team. Tony Kornheiser writes about what he will remember most from the 1996 Olympics: inflatable beer cans.
