    Winter Olympics Torino 2006 has come to an end ... now Here We Come Van Couver 2010

    Turin hands Olympic circus off to Vancouver Feb. 26, 2006

    TURIN, Italy -- Turin's Olympics, a topsy-turvy mix of marvels and misadventures, ended appropriately with a closing-ceremony Carnevale -- a circus-like celebration full of clowns and acrobats, vibrant and often dreamlike.

    Fireworks, confetti and pulsating ballads filled the air. At one point, a winged snowboarder hovered high above ground, as if by magic.

    Some athletes wore red clown noses Sunday night as they swarmed across the huge stage of Olympic Stadium, waving jubilantly to a backdrop of bouncy Italian songs. Many of the 35,000 spectators donned devil and angel masks in a closing ceremony doubling as the annual Carnevale festival celebrated across Italy this weekend.

    Italy had an extra reason to celebrate -- a brand-new national hero as headliner of the first medal ceremony included in a Winter Games' closing festivities. After an Olympics that often lacked star power, Italy's Giorgio di Centa filled the void with a final-day victory in the 50-kilometer cross-country race.

    The crowd erupted in cheers and waved a sea of tiny Italian flags as di Centa and his fellow medalists strode to the podium. Helping bestow the medals was di Centa's sister, Manuela, an International Olympic Committee member and former cross-country medalist herself.

    Before declaring the Games closed, IOC president Jacques Rogge described the Turin Olympics as "truly magnificent."

    "You have succeeded brilliantly in meeting your challenge," he told organizers. "Grazie, Torino."

    "We've done it," exulted Valentino Castellani, the organizing committee chief.

    While Castellani spoke, an intruder approached the microphone and shouted, "Passion lives in Torino" before being whisked away by security officers. Police said the man was Spanish; he was taken into custody for questioning.

    The spotlight then shifted to Vancouver, host of the 2010 Games, with the raising of Canada's Maple Leaf flag and a sonorous rendition of O, Canada by British Columbia-born opera star Ben Heppner. In a relay, an Olympic flag was handed by Turin mayor Sergio Chiamparino to Rogge and then to Vancouver mayor Sam Sullivan
