The country pulled off the first sweep of the games in the women's 3,000-meter speed skating event - earning the gold, silver and bronze.

The most surprising development in the men's luge was when Germany's Felix Loch, who appeared well on his way to a third straight Olympic gold medal in the event entering the final run, glanced into the wall and finished a disappointing fifth place.

UK SPORT has set the highest medal target for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The IOC does not consider its sorting of nations as an official system and in the United States of America medal tables are published by the total number of medals won.

Norway also won 11 events but Russian Federation edged ahead of them on the basis of their nine silvers in a total of 29 medals.

For example at Sochi 2014, US won a total of 28 medals (the second highest amount of medals) but were fourth in the table because Norway and Canada won more golds.

How did Great Britain do in Sochi 2014?

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.

Simen Hegstad Krüger won the country's gold medal, while Martin Johnsrud Sundby took the silver medal, and Hans Christer Holund got the bronze medal in the Men's Skiathlon.

The country took home all three medals in the grueling men's 15-kilometer plus 15-kilometer skiathlon in the cross-country skiing portion of the Games.

Medals were awarded in biathlon, cross-country skiing, speedskating, short-track speedskating and ski jumping.

The Netherlands comes in second place in the total number of medals with five, including two gold, two silver, and one bronze.

Incredibly, Krueger crashed in the opening portion of the race and still came all the way back to win.
