However, it is still Norway atop the medal counter, and it is largely because of one event in particular.

While the United States had just the one gold and one silver going into Sunday, they did some work to catch up in the medal counts. Chris Mazdzer won a silver medal in men's luge. Los Angeles will host the 2028 Olympics, bringing the Games back to the United States for the first time since Salt Lake City hosted in 2002.

Norway, always considered a force in the Winter Olympics, lead the total medal count with eight.

Then in the women's slopestyle snowboarding event, the American's dominated as usual. Simen Hegstad Krueger won gold with a time of one hour, 16 minutes and 20 seconds, Martin Johnsrud Sundby took home silver at 1:16:28, and Hans Christer Holund captured bronze at 1:16:30. Specifically, Jamie Anderson defended her Sochi gold medal in the event by taking the gold on Sunday evening.

The United States picked up their first gold medal when 17-year-old Red Gerard won the Men's Slopestyle event on Saturday.
