    All I really take away from that table is that Norway is evidently pretty good at the winter Olympics.

    100 machines and counting...

    North Korea not doing so well...

    Now if Kim were there, he'd win them all! Gold, Silver and Bronze! (according to state media )

    Day 14!! I think with 38 Norway now has the most medals won in a winter games..I think that beats the US from 2010, but too lazy to look it up!! (Ok, I looked it p, I was right!! Canada got the most golds..I think we got so many that year because it was practically a home games for us..) Canada already has more medals than they got in Vancouver, so I think this year is their most ever total!! In the last few days it will be a battle for second.. Hopefully he US can stay in 4th.. Team GP is now at 5!! Five times their Vancouver medals and 20% more than Sochi!!

    Day 15!! I think there's just some cross country skiing yet to finish, so probably not a lot will change after today.. But today we moved up to 30 countries with medals when Belgium joined the party with a silver in the Men's Mass Start Speed Skating debut!! winner:
