The 2002 Winter Olympics, officially the XIX Olympic Winter Games (French: Les XIXes Jeux olympiques d'hiver), were a winter multi-sport event that was celebrated in February 2002 in and around Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. Approximately 2,400 athletes from 78 nations participated in 78 events in fifteen disciplines, held throughout 165 sporting sessions. The 2002 Winter Olympics and the 2002 Paralympic Games were both organized by the Salt Lake Organizing Committee (SLOC). Utah became the fifth state in the United States to host the Olympic Games, and the 2002 Winter Olympics are the most recent games to be held in the United States.

The opening ceremony was held on February 8, 2002, and sporting competitions were held up until the closing ceremony on February 24, 2002. Music for both ceremonies was directed by Mark Watters. Salt Lake City became the most populous area ever to have hosted the Winter Olympics, although the two subsequent host cities' populations were larger. Following a trend, the 2002 Olympic Winter Games were also larger than all prior Winter Games, with 10 more events than the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan; this became a trend with more and more events held in subsequent Games.

The Salt Lake Games faced a bribery scandal and some local opposition during the bid, as well as some sporting and refereeing controversies during the competitions. Nevertheless, from sporting and business standpoints, this was one of the most successful Winter Olympiads in history; records were set in both the broadcasting and marketing programs. Over 2billion viewers watched more than 13billion viewer-hours. The Games were also financially successful raising more money with fewer sponsors than any prior Olympic Games, which left SLOC with a surplus of $40million. The surplus was used to create the Utah Athletic Foundation, which maintains and operates many of the remaining Olympic venues. U.S. Federal subsidies amounted to $1.3 billion.

  • What Is The Elevation Of Salt Lake City,UT?

    It Is In Salt Lake County

    (m) ELEVATION Salt Lake City: 4330 feet / 1320 meters Snowbird: 8100 feet / 2469 meters Salt Lake City is the state capital and most populous city in the U.S. state of Utah. The population of the city, as of the 2000 Census, was 181,743. It is the seat of Salt Lake County, which encompasses the Salt Lake Valley and 15 other municipalities to include a total population of 978,285. The Salt Lake City metropolitan area spans two additional counties, Summit and Tooele, and has a total estimated population of 1,005,232 in 2003. It is situated between two other metropolitan areas in an urban area called the Wasatch Front, which has a combined population of 2,009,595 as of 2005. The city occupies the north end of the Salt Lake Valley at an elevation of 4,330 feet (1,320 m). The valley is surrounded by mountains that rise dramatically to an elevation of 11,752 feet (3,582 m). Named after the nearby Great Salt Lake—in fact, the original name was "Great Salt Lake City"—the city is separated from the shores of the lake by marshes and mudflats. Founded in 1847 by a group of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) led by Brigham Young, Salt Lake City is among the oldest cities in the region and is the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mining and railroads initially brought economic growth, and the city became known as the "Crossroads of the West." In the 21st Century the city has developed a strong tourism industry and was host to the 2002 Winter Olympics. The Salt Lake City metropolitan area is the industrial banking center of the United States[1], the center of business along the rapidly-growing Wasatch Front, and the gateway to several resort towns, ski resorts and national parks; such as Park City, Snowbird ski resort, and Arches National Park.

  • Is Salt Lake City a target city in a nuclear war?

    I'm not actually a Mormon, but many of my friends are, and I LOVE Salt Lake City. It's one of the most beautiful cities in the country, but many people don't seem to know

    I've lived in Salt Lake area my whole life, and it is a beautiful place. To answer your question, my own opinion is there in nothing here to want to destroy. The only thing that comes to mind is the chemical weapons depot in a town called Tooele, pronounced Too ill uh. It is used to incinerate old chemical weapons. It's only about 30 miles west of Salt Lake, and south a bit. That could be target, but not nuclear. Another smaller target could be Hill Air Force Base in Clearfield, about 40 miles north of SL. I can't see any reason to nuke the place. I would think nukes would go to major metro areas, and government symbols such as New York, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. Anyway, I'm curioius why you bring religion into the equation at all, your question is about a terrorist attack, or act of war. The local majority religion has nothing to do with your question. AND there are more Mormons in California than Utah, a fact.

  • 2002 salt lake city olympic. sig sauer?

    I bought a sig sauer 40 and got some? ??? It has on the top of it engraved the utah olympic seal and on the one side it has police officer engraved on it the other side has 151 of

    I would guess that would depend on exactly how old it is, and the condition that it comes in. However, I would wait to sell it because oneday it could be a lot more.

  • What do u know about: Dallas, Texas/San antonio, Texas/& Salt Lake City, Utah?

    hi, okay so here's a little something 2 keep in mind(4 what it's worth/might help?...idk?) i'm a 22 yr old african-american male, just became a licensed massage

    Well, first I am from Utah. We get snow and sometimes lots of it (it is snowing hard right now), so can you deal with snow. We do have a fantastic outdoors life here though, there is skiing and lots of winter sports here and in the summer there is hiking, camping and fishing and hunting in general. Since the 2002 Olympics housing prices has been going up and the market for buying is pretty high. I don't know much about rent as I have never rented here but, West Valley City and West Jordan City have the highest Crime Rates in the Salt Lake Area. Salt Lake City is a nice place to live...feel free to e-mail me with questions and I will try to answer them. There are a few quirks that you should know about. Most liquor has to be bought at the State Liquor Store. You can buy like, beers in the grocery store but, wine and hard liquor has to be bought from the State Liquor Store. They have even been known to confiscate liquor bought by mail as that technically violates the liquor laws. Also, as for bars liquor can only be served in private clubs, it is easy to become a member but, that too is a something that is different than other states. Also Utah is a no smoking in public places state...our laws are not quite as strict as California though. Some of the more local stores will close on Sunday to observe the Sabbath due to the huge LDS influence. There are still major stores open then but, keep in mind that some stores do close. We are a big enough city that we have a good symphony, ballet and opera company. We will get Broadway shows from the touring companies. There is a lot of excellent community theater as well. To refute Holly, the LDS church is the largest church in the state but, there are many people who are not Mormon. There is not a huge African American population here but, we are far from all white. I know a few African American people and it seems as time goes by, I am noticing more and more but, it is a small community. If you are Gay, well...I have friends who are gay as well and have found life partners here it is just again, those two populations are smaller, so you will have to ask yourself if you can deal with that. Pay in Utah has been smaller but, if you work somewhere like Park City as a Massage Therapist you can make some money. There are quite a few Massage Therapy schools in the area though so I wonder at the abundance of jobs. I know the day spa I go to charges about 60 an hour. I know one lady who does massage out of her house and charges 30 an hour so, I would think you would be able to do fine money wise, if you can find a job.

  • Why don't Americans remember what happen in 2002 Salt Lake City?

    In 2002 when the Olympics where held in Salt Lake City Utah; both Canada's men and woman's clubs defeated the americans in the final winning the gold metal on there home soil.

    Plenty of Americans do. The people popping off today like the USA just won the Stanley Cup and the gold medal combined are just a bunch of rude kids who probably don't know the first thing about hockey. They're just using last night's game as an excuse to bash people from behind their computers and make themselves feel all high and mighty.
