Keep track of each country's Olympic medal count with this tool

Norway had a clean sweep of the Men's 15km + 15km Skiathlon in Cross-Country Skiing, the second clean sweep of the tournament.

The U.S. has won two early medals at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, tying them with the Czech Republic for fifth place in the medal standings in Day 3.

There is a chance that this may go up to five medals after two Russian teams were disqualified following the McLaren Report which would mean that the four-man bobsleigh team would win the bronze medal.

Athletes compete in the women's 7.5km + 7.5km skiathlon at the Alpensia Cross-Country Skiing Centre in Pyeongchang, South Korea on February 10, 2018.

However, it is still Norway atop the medal counter, and it is largely because of one event in particular. Marit Bjoergen won the silver medal in women's category of the same event.

With a score of 83.00, she comfortably beat silver medalist Laurie Blouin (76.33) of Canada and bronze medalist Enni Rukajarvi (75.38) of Finland in a competition defined by falls and mistakes because of strong gusts of winds impacting the athletes.

Germany is third in the list, with four medals, including three gold and one bronze.

TEAMS are ranked in the Winter Olympic medal table using the "gold first" system.

Team USA has one gold medal and one silver, trailing countries Norway (8), the Netherlands (5), Germany (4) and Canada (4) in the overall medal count.

However, the temperatures did not stop the Tongan cross-country skier, Pita Taufatofua, from appearing topless in his national outfit to carry his country's flag in the main stadium, where temperatures were as low as -3C. Seventeen-year-old Red Gerard brought the US its first gold medal of the Olympics in Slopestyle Snowboarding, while Chris Mazdzer won silver in the men's singles category in Luge.

The United States now sits fifth in the ranking of total medals, having won a gold and a silver medal.
