The winter Olympics have ended after 19 days, meaning we can see the results without wondering who will have the most medals. So here are the statistics.
The Winter Olympics are a series of competitions that take place throughout the winter months. Since the first Winter Olympic Games in 1924, ice hockey, cross-country skiing, ski jumping, figure skating, and speed skating have all appeared in all Winter Olympic Games. This year's winter Olympics were super interesting and great. There were extraordinary athletes and each one's performance was amazing. This winter Olympics we found out that Norway had the most overall medals with a whopping 37. Norway also broke the world record for the most gold medals won during the Winter Olympics with 16. So to everyone from Norway, You did super great!!
Norway's earned victory in the men's biathlon, and it boasts medals in ski jumping, Nordic combined, speedskating, cross-country, and freestyle skiing as well.
Norwegian success is not new at the winter Olympics. They have been dominating the leader boards since 2010 when they came in 4th overall. They did really great in many sports like cross-country skiing, speed skating, ski jumping, and freestyle skiing. In fact, they won the gold medal count in 2018 as well; it seems they don’t want to stop.
Norway’s improvement is also making other nations get better with them. Germany was a close second in gold medals earned this year and also in 2018. Looks like there is a competition between the two. I can’t wait to see what happens between them next winter Olympics.
