SALT LAKE 2002 OLYMPIC & PARALYMPIC CEREMONIES
We won seven gold medals… in the shape of Emmys.
The Opening Ceremony of the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games won more Emmy Awards than any Olympic Ceremony in history; seven statues were shared for creative and production excellence. Our 10,180 cast and volunteers brought the games vision, Light the Fire Within,
to life in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies—bookends of a rich and resonant story that
drew the largest American audience of any Olympic Ceremony before or after.
