The 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang have wrapped up, with the closing ceremony showing on TV last night. We’ve got a fast recap, number of medals won, and that one 13 year old who was absolutely shredding that guitar, all right here.

Let’s start with the guitar player, Yang Tae-hwan. He’s a Korean 13-year-old who clearly grew up playing guitar, and he gained a TON of new fans during the ceremony.

Next – What was Team USA’s official medal count? Well, we scored 23 medals total. 9 were Gold, 8 Silver, and 6 Bronze. The Gold wins were mostly in snowboarding/skiing, Women’s Hockey, and Men’s Curling. See more info on the medals and who won what specifically here, and a video of all the Gold awards here.

Speaking of Men’s Curling, the guys were given the wrong medals as their award. Rather than saying “Men’s Curling,” the medals said “Women’s Curling.” Oops.

Team USA coming into the room with that “Gangnam Style” song playing:

We can’t forget about Oh Yeon-jun, the 11-year-old who sang the anthem. This kid sings better than some pro pop-stars. Unfortunately there’s no video from his actual performance, YouTube takes them down just as fast as they’re uploaded, but here’s a little background on him.

A member of North Korea’s ruling family visited South Korea for the first time since 1953, Kim Jong Un’s sister Kim Yo Jong visited and shook hands with the President of South Korea, Moon Jae-in:

Remember that hot shirtless guy who carried his country’s flag from 2016? He decided to take up skiing like it was a new hobby, and he came back for another ceremony:
