Winter Olympics 2018: Norway Remain Best in Class

Winter Olympics 2018: Norway Remain Best in Class

Just this week, Shaun White's gold-medal run at one of Pyeongchang's venues became the second most-watched event in NBC's Winter Games history.

Entering the day, Norway tops the current medal count with 19 overall medals - six gold, eight silver and five bronze. They have 10 total medals in cross-country skiing, including four golds and four silvers. Laurie Blouin of Quebec captured the silver medal for Canada and Ennj Rukajarvi the bronze for Finland.

A record 110,000 condoms have been handed out to the nearly 3,000 Olympians in PyeongChang; that's almost 40 condoms per athlete.

Also, the Winter Games are smaller: The Rio Games of 2016 had 306 medal events, for instance, while the Pyeongchang Games have 102. Josh is now a member of the FWAA and USBWA. The excitement was palpable at the sold-out Gangneung Ice Arena, what with two finals left, and hopes that South Koreans might win gold in both of them. She'll compete in two other events over the weekend.

Yun thundered over the finish line at over 125 kilometres per hour in front of a euphoric home crowd, then took off his helmet and gave a deep bow on his hands and knees."It is not my effort alone that got me this medal". With Antoine 0.91 seconds out of medal position, it's very unlikely Team USA will win a medal in skeleton in PyeongChang.

The drone was shot down by an Apache attack helicopter, according to the IDF, and Israeli jets conducted reprisal raids against military positions in Syria.

She adds: "I'm in Korea for a couple of weeks for what some people would say is a pretty important race, and I couldn't be more excited to be here". "That's probably the best run I've had down the track". The Americans were out of medal contention after the first two runs, and did not climb in the rankings over the final two runs.

"It feels unbelievable to win Olympic gold", said Yun. The workers were even forced to stop using a metal detector at one point, a very uncommon occurrence at the Olympic Games where security is always stringent.

"I texted him last night and told him not to feel too much pressure", said Kim Joon-ho, a childhood friend of Yun's.
