VANCOUVER -- More than four years after the Olympic flame went out on the West Coast, the Vancouver Organizing Committee has released its final reports and turned out the lights.

VANOC says the 2010 Games broke even, with total revenues and expenses just shy of $1.9 billion.

At the end of the day, the federal government contributed $74.4 million, the British Columbia government $113.4 million, other governments $176 million, and the International Olympic Committee $659 million in sponsorships and contributions to cover the tab.

The report says all sites have been remediated and turned over to local governments as legacy venues and the organizing committee was dissolved after its final meeting on June 27.

The final report says several claims and disputed contracts have been resolved since the event, as well as an 18-month coroner's review of the Whistler Sliding Centre, where a Georgian luger was killed in a training accident.

Board chairman Ken Dobell says the Games left a debt-free legacy for the country.
