    Which brings me to the quote of the Games, as chosen by the Guardian:

    "My name is Odd-Bjoern Hjelmeset. I skied the second lap and I f****d up today. I think I have seen too much porn in the last 14 days. I have the room next to Petter Northug and every day there is noise in there. So I think that is the reason I f****d up. By the way Tiger Woods is a really good man."
    Dedication and intensity, indeed. Or something.

    (Odd-Bjorn Hjelmeset was part of a silver-medal-winning XC relay team.)

    I'm a little late to this thread, but here is my take on what I found inspiring at the Winter Olympics (it's a bit long-winded, so I'll just post the link here):

    Inspiration across Sports: Figure Skating as Dressage on Ice

    I hope some of you might find it inspiring, too
