    Male - Apollo Ono- Love how he competes.

    Female- Julia Mancuso - Despite being overshadowed by the much promoted Lindsey Vonn, Julia went out and competed and won a medal without the fanfare.

    Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette. As close as I am to my mother, I just can't even imagine how horrible that must have been for her. She paid a beautiful tribute to her mother in her performances.

    Oh yeah, Shaun White is incredible. I love his carefree spirit. Doesn't seem to have an ego. Refreshing. Something about Bode Miller intrigues me, but I can't put my finger on it. Normally if I saw someone waste that kind of talent like he did four years ago, I'd want to kick him.

    Vonn and Mancuso in a two-way tie ... which would make a great three-way.

    Mancuso over Vonn slightly.

    I wish I had seen Slovenian cross-country skier Petra Majdic compete.
    Majdic fell in warmups and broke five ribs and punctured a lung and went on to win a bronze in the sprints.
    I wouldn't normally be impressed by an American but we watched Shaun White's performance and it was the most dominating of the Olympics. He was so far ahead of anyone else competing that it was a joke. Plus he seems like a good guy.

    Alexandre Bilodeau, Joannie Rochette, Jonathan Toews and Ryan Miller are my stand outs.

    Ryan Miller and Zach Parise stand out for me, but I didn't get to see much outside of hockey and curling.
