Here are the updated medal standings at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
Team USA continues to attempt to work its way up the medal standings at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Here’s where things stand as of Tuesday morning.
The Americans earned their third gold medal of the games on Tuesday. It was another snowboarding one.
This one was one by the darling of the 2018 Games – Chloe Kim. The 17-year-old snowboarder has emerged as arguably the biggest star of these Olympics.
Kim, a California native, took home the gold medal in women’s halfpipe. She’s the youngest woman to win a snowboarding gold.
“This has been a long journey,” she told reporters. “Going home with the gold is amazing.”
Kim is the second 17-year-old American snowboarder to win gold at the Winter Olympics this year. The Americans’ first gold was won by Red Gerard.
Team USA, though, remains a couple of spots out of first place. Here are the standings as of this morning:
- Norway – 11 (3 gold, 5 silver, 3 bronze)
- Netherlands – 10 (4 gold, 4 silver, 2 bronze)
- Canada – 10 (3 gold, 4 silver, 3 bronze)
- Germany – 9 (5 gold, 2 silver, 2 silver)
- United States – 6 (3 gold, 1 silver, 2 bronze)
The Winter Olympics will continue today. Coverage will be on NBC and its sister channels.
