The games are underway.

The 2018 PyeongChang Olympics are in full swing. As the games roll on, many people around the world are following where their home nation ranks on the ever-changing medal count list.

Over 90 nations are participating in this year's games, but not all of them will be big winners. Thus far, only 7 countries have made the medal count, led by the Netherlands (one gold, two silver, and one bronze) and Norway (three silver, one bronze).

Eight "countries" in total are in the medal county. However, Russia is not being identified as a nation in this year's Olympics as a punishment for widespread doping allegations.

Germany leads the gold medal count with 2, while South Korea, Sweden, Czech Republic, Finland, and the Olympic Athlete from Russia are all tied with one medal apiece.

The host country took home its first gold of the weekend with a win in the short track speed skating event. There are plenty of other medal events scheduled for later tonight, including in snowboarding, luge, and cross-country skiing.

Tomorrow, medals will be handed out in alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, and speed skating, among other events.

The United States has yet to secure its first medal of the games, but that shouldn't last long.

Which nations will be moving up the medal chart?
