Congratulations to Norway for setting a new Olympic medal count record of 39 total medals, 14 gold medals, 14 silver medals, and 11 bronze medals, beating the old record of most total medals won at a single Olympic Games. This break out year was lead by Norway’s elite Alpine Skiers who are so good that they have received the name “The Attacking Vikings”. Germany came in second this year with 31 total medals with 14 gold medals, 10 silver medals, and 7 bronze medals. The U.S.A finished forth with a respectable 9 gold medals, 8 silver medals, and 6 bronze medals. The host country, South Korea, did well in the medal count finishing in 7th place in the medal count. They ended the Olympics with 5 gold medals, 8 silver medals, and 4 bronze medals. Next Winter Olympics will be in Beijing where China will have a home field advantage for their athletes, but do you think that will really be a factor?
