A skiier seemingly levitates in mid-air as he performs over a huge wind machine during the Closing Ceremony for the 2006 Winter Olympics Sunday February 26, 2005 at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin, Italy. An image of his performance is on a huge television screen in the background. The Closing Ceremony featured a dizzying array of circus acts, parades and a general carnival atmosphere. Performers included clowns swivelling in large hoops, ballerinas and tumblers, acrobats dangling high above the stage from ribbons and rings, a stilt walker jumping rope, dancers dressed as Tarot cards and highflying acrobats performing over a tunnel of wind. The Closing Ceremony capped off 16 days of Olympic competition that saw the U.S. win 25 total medals, second to only Germany with 29 total medals.
