Earthquake in Chile[edit]

On 27 February 2010, an earthquake struck Chile. As a result, Chilean athletes Jorge Mandrú and Maui Gayme chose not to take part in the closing ceremony out of respect for the victims of the earthquake.[1] Noelle Barahona, the only athlete to remain at Vancouver, carried the flag at the closing ceremony.
