Not that we’re boorish enough to run down the street claiming our nation is the best in the world and no one can touch us with a 20 foot pole…but…USA! USA! USA! We’re #1! We’re #1!

OK, now that’s out of our system, and we can stick to reporting facts. The fact is, the US is #1 in Olympic medals, both overall and gold. Will we keep our spot at the top? The count so far is this: The United States has 6 gold medals, 5 silvers and 7 bronzes for a total of 18 Olympic medals.

Germany is next in line with 11 overall medals (4 golds, 4 silvers, 3 bronzes). In third place is Norway with 3 golds, 3 silvers and 2 bronzes for a total of 8. Glad to see the home country Canada in the top 5 with 3 golds, 3 silvers and 1 bronze. France rounds out the top five with 2 golds, 1 silver and 4 bronzes.
