The United States is finally on the board at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Here is the updated medal count.
Thanks to 17-year old Red Gerard, America is on the board at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The phenom snowboarded edged out a pair of Canadians to take home gold.
Gerard took first place in the men’s slopestyle snowboarding event. He beat Max Parrot and Mark McMorris.
The two Canadians got their country on the board as well. Nine total countries have now won medals.
Russian athletes have also taken home a medal. They are participating under the banner of "Olympic athletes from Russia."
The actual country was banned from participating from this year's games. A widespread Russian doping scheme from the last two Olympics got the country itself banned.
Two countries have the overall medal lead. Norway and The Netherlands have captured four each.
Germany is the only country with two gold medals. Germans won in the Women's 7.5 km sprint in the biathlon and men's normal hill individual in ski jumping. Here is the full medal count, via the Olympics.
Figure skating, cross country skiing, and snowboarding are currently on the NBC family of networks. Curling, luge, speed skating, and biathlon are among the events on tomorrow.
This year's games are being played in Pyeonchang, South Korea. We will continue to update the official medal count throughout these 2018 Winter Olympics.
