Team USA Medal Race Updates 02/11/2022
The medal race is tight at the top after Austria joined Norway on 14 total medals, the two nations just a quarter of those to win double-digit medal as we near the midpoint of the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Germany is shining with the most golds, seven, but that’s just one more than Norway, and two ahead of Netherlands and Sweden.
As for the numbers behind Day 7, including some big ones for Team USA:
- Team USA did not win a medal on Feb. 11, so their total remains at 10: four gold, five silver, one bronze
- On Day 7 in 2018 PyeongChang, the U.S. had the same amount of medals as on Day 6 – five gold, one silver, two bronze
- Netherlands: Suzanne Schulting wins gold in the Women’s Short Track 1000m, the 5th gold for the Netherlands in Beijing. This is the 50th winter Olympic gold medal for the Netherlands but just the country’s 2nd in short track. To date, 46 of the country’s 50 gold medals have come in speed skating
- Belgium: Hanne Desmet wins bronze in the Women’s Short Track 1000m, Belgium’s 1st medal of these Games, their 1st in short track, and their 7th all time Winter Olympic medal
- 52 of 109 events have been completed
Nearing the midpoint of medals awarded, Team USA is hoping to improve on its solid fourth-place finish in 2018, when its 23 medals trailed Norway (39), Germany (31), and Canada (29).
The Americans also had the fourth-most gold medals in 2018 with nine, but have now not claimed a Day 1 medal at consecutive Olympics.
Team USA is chasing its medal-best standard of 34 overall with 10 golds on home turf in Salt Lake City during the 2022 Winter Olympics.
