Official sites like Olympic.org and Vancouver 2010 are good sources of information about the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia. There are many other sources of news, e.g., “2010 Winter Games” (Vancouver Sun), “Vancouver Games” (CNN), and “Winter Olympics” (Telegraph). Not surprisingly, news sources in most countries give fullest coverage to their own athletes.

Comprehensive works about the Winter Olympic Games are classed in 796.98 Winter Olympic games, e.g., The Winter Olympics and The Complete Book of the Winter Olympics.

The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th century forced the IOC to adapt the Games to the world's changing social circumstances. Some of these adjustments included the creation of the Winter Games for ice and snow sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with physical disabilities, and the Youth Olympic Games for teenage athletes. The IOC also had to accommodate the Games to the varying economical, political, and technological realities of the 20th century. As a result, the Olympics shifted away from pure amateurism, as envisioned by Coubertin, to allow participation of professional athletes. The growing importance of the mass media created the issue of corporate sponsorship and commercialization of the Games.

I had a Winter Olympic Book lesson, we made the rings with the cardboard paper towel cylinders, painted on the circles with the appropriate colors, and stamped just as the flag looks. It was really cool. To save I just one paper towel thing per 2 colors on side for ex. was yellow the other side blue. We also make snow boarders with pipe cleaners and pop cycle sticks (works for other sports figures too).
