Lindsey Vonn Wheaties Cover
Olympic golden girl Vonn takes her turn on the Wheaties box.

Lindsey Vonn is one hot item these days, from the front of Sports Illustrated to Jay Leno's hot seat to coffee-klatching with Ellen DeGeneres—while skiing to one gold and one bronze medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games in between. But her latest appearance, in mid-turn on the cover of a Wheaties box, seems appropriate. After all, General Mills has been featuring world-class athletes on boxes of Wheaties cereal since Lou Gehrig in 1934. Vonn's not the only Vancouver star taking her turn on the orange box.

The Mallard Lounge's Triple Lutz
The Olympic Games may be over, but the Mallard Lounge at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is now home to the Triple Lutz, a après cocktail full of Canadian spirit.

Last year, the Olympic 2010 cocktail was only a vision for Mallard Lounge Manager John Mackinnon. Now a reality, the festive Triple Lutz pays homage to the Games as a tantalizing cocktail that celebrates Canadian ingredients sourced Coast-to-Coast. First, Victoria Gin produced on Vancouver Island is paired with Crystal Head Vodka from the Atlantic Shores of Newfoundland.

Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong competes in slalom
Ghana and Albania each sent one skier to the 2010 Games. We should all take inspiration from their stories.

Sure, Bode won his first gold, and the all the drama surrounding Lindsey Vonn -- the Riesch-Vonn friendship/rivalry, the Vonn-Mancuso Twitter war -- was certainly televisual. But underneath that sheen were some real stories of true triumph, of no-hope Olympians coming out of the woodwork and onto the world's stage, heads held high.

A ninth Olympic medal for the U.S. Ski Team was not to be as the top two U.S. contenders skied off the tricky course early in the first run.

The DNF list from the first run of the men's slalom event was half as long as the start list, causing many athletes and viewers to question the course setup.

Riesch victory in slalom
A split-second slip-up in today's women's race brought a disappointing end to Lindsey Vonn's Olympic run.

A disappointing end to Lindsey Vonn's Olympic run: After skiing off course in Thursday's GS race -- and arguably derailing teammate Julia Mancuso's defense of her 2006 gold -- Vonn straddled a gate just 16 seconds into today's slalom race and failed to finish. It was the final women's alpine event of the 2010 Games, and it seemed as if Vonn was happy to see it all end.

Jeret Peterson celebrates silver
After a hard ride on the comeback trail, Jeret Peterson lands his brilliant trademark Hurricane to finally medal.

Anybody who watched the 2006 Olympics in Torino should remember Jeret "Speedy" Peterson, the fast-living aerialist known equally for his off-hill carousing as his on-hill brilliance. Before the Torino Games Peterson created the Hurricane, a five-twist-three-flip trick that's stunning even when it fails, and vowed to pull one during his Olympic run.
