Straley adds that many of Salt Lake City's 2002 venues remain today, from the Kearns Ice Oval to the Olympic flame that still burns outside the University of Utah stadium that hosted opening and closing ceremonies.Salt Lake City uses the sites for lots of winter-sports competitions, and has also opened up the speed-skating and ski-jump facilities for public use, she says.
