The Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games, which were record-breaking in terms of athletic performances, ticket sales and media coverage, came to an end tonight at Fisht Stadium in Russia with a spectacular Closing Ceremony. Through the theme of "Reaching the Impossible," the Closing Ceremony illuminated how dreams can be achieved through strength and passion to change the perception of "impossible" to "I'm possible." Steve Cash of the gold medal-winning U.S. sled hockey team carried the flag for Team USA.
