Olympics //
Oz-some!
Another sold-out crowd of more than 110,000 at Stadium Australia was treated to a colorful Closing Ceremony on Sunday, as a riveting display of fireworks, flags and old-fashioned fun helped Sydney say goodbye to its visitors from around the globe. With music, dancing, a parade of Aussie celebrities and one last look at the world's most interesting athletes, the curtain came down on what outgoing IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch called "the best Olympic Games ever."
