Winnipeg's Cindy Klassen achieved unprecedented results, capturing five medals to give her six overall, both Canadian records. It also marked the highest total by a female speed skater, surpassing the four gold medals won by Lidiya Skoblikova of Russia at the 1964 Innsbruck Winter Games.
"To see Cindy Klassen win five medals, she was definitely the woman of the Games," Rogge said.
"Led by Cindy...(these) Games have been a huge step forward for high-performance sport in our country," said Canada's chef de mission Shane Pearsall.
