We're now a week into the 2018 Winter Olympics. The opening ceremony welcomed 91 nations (and the Olympic Athletes of Russia) to the games just over a week ago.

The United States haven't made a ton of movement lately. The Americans currently sit in 5th place among all countries.

Snowboarding has been USA's best sport so far. Four U.S. gold medals have come in the discipline, including from two 17-year-olds in Red Gerard and Chloe Kim.

Shaun White, the most-accomplished snowboarder of all-time, used a near-perfect final run to capture gold in the men's snowboard halfpipe. Skiing star Mikaela Shiffrin claimed gold earlier this week in the women's giant slalom.

Team USA has five gold medals in total. The Americans have eight medals overall.

Winter Olympics Medal Standings

  1. Norway - 19 (6 gold, 8 silver, 5 bronze)
  2. Germany - 15 (9 gold, 2 silver, 4 bronze)
  3. Netherlands - 13 (6 gold, 5 silver, 2 bronze)
  4. Canada - 13 (4 gold, 5 silver, 4 bronze)
  5. United States - 8 (5 gold, 1 silver, 2 bronze)

Shiffrin was the gold medal-favorite in the women's slalom, but failed to make the podium, finishing fourth. She'll compete in two other events over the weekend.

Meanwhile, U.S. favorite Lindsey Vonn will see her first action of the Olympics over the weekend as well. The Olympics continue all day today and tonight. Coverage will air on NBC and its sister channels.
