The 2010 Winter Olympics, officially the XXI Olympic Winter Games or the 21st Winter Olympics, was a major international multi-sport event held on February 12–28, 2010, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

82 National Olympic Committees entered teams in the 2010 Winter Olympics to bring fifteen winter sports events.
As in any festival of games many trofees where given. 2010 Winter Olympics medal table

The many medals mean something irreplaceable for the winners. As they stand on the podium to receive their medals what delight to share something of the feeling of being the best in the world, of having achieved one’s dreams! We rejoice with the winners, and commiserate with the losers.

Here no Iron and clay medals. But in the historic papers we do find notes about gaines and losses, and worlds of gold, silver, bronze, iron and clay.
Gold, silver, bronze: when you see the winter victors standing in human glory to receive their medals, just spare a long thought for the way this mixed iron and clay world is heading, and an even longer thought for the value of the crown which God offers you with his Son in this world made perfect.
