Quiz Description

RobinJRichards gave a quiz on the chronological summary of the Rio 2016 Olympics. This time, let's see if you can answer twenty questions for 17 days of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Take note that if the answer is a country, their IOC code is acceptable. Also, take note that SPELLING COUNTS. However, if the nation is correct and the code is not (or vice versa), it will be counted wrong, so choose one or the other. Wrong spelling for the full name of the person in question either way will also be counted as wrong.
