Winter Olympics 2018 medal count: Norway leads all countries with eight

Adjust Comment Print

The United States rounds out the top five with four total medals - including two gold. High winds scuttled the finals of the men's downhill and women's giant slalom.

The U.S. has no shortage of gold medal favorites, led by skier Mikaela Shiffrin.

Competition is underway after the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

An Olympic champion who was able to defend her gold from the 2014 Sochi Games was Jamie Anderson, who prevailed against the elements and the rest of the field in the women's snowboarding slopestyle event.

Below, we've rounded up every medal the United States has won so far at the 2018 PyeongChang Games. Simen Hegstad Krüger won the country's gold medal, while Martin Johnsrud Sundby took the silver medal, and Hans Christer Holund got the bronze medal in the Men's Skiathlon. Four of these medals come from Speed Skating, where the country won two gold medals, one silver, and one bronze.

If Norway lands more performances like that, it will be tough to deal with for the other countries as they attempt to make up ground in the medal tracker.

Germany is in fourth with four total medals including three gold.

Canada, while still looking for its first gold medal, has managed to rack up four medals as well, with three silver and one bronze.

The Netherlands is now in third with five total medals including two gold.
