BEIJING (KXAN) — Over the course of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, 327 medals were awarded in 109 different events.
KXAN is keeping track of the medal count in the table below. The convention used by the International Olympic Committee is to sort by the number of gold medals, then silver, then bronze. This means the country that wins the most medals overall may not necessarily be at the top of the table.
The first gold medal of the 2022 Winter Olympic Games was won by Therese Johaug (Norway) in the women’s 7.5km + 7.5km skiathlon (cross-country skiing). Natalia Nepryaeva (Russian Olympic Committee) won silver, and Teresa Stadlober (Austria) took bronze.
The chart below shows how the number of medals awarded to each country changed throughout the competition.
