2002 Winter Olympics - Salt Lake, Utah Feb 24, 2002

The 2002 Winter Olympic Games were held in and around Salt Lake City, Utah from February 8 to 24, 2002. The Paralympics from March 7 to 16, 2002.

During the opening ceremony, a pyrotechnic display began north of the stadium. Workers at 11 launch sites in the valley around the stadium ignited 10,000 shells that spectacularly lit the mountains for nearly five minutes as the Olympic anthem blared through the stadium.


A dazzling performance for the closing ceremony

beautifully choreographed by Phil Grucci and company 

to the official theme of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games -

"Call of the Champions" by John Williams.

For some reason, it was not broadcast on the national NBC feed.
