Update: Olympics Medal Count 2014 (Team USA Women Are Kicking Ass)
We're almost a week into the 2014 Sochi Olympics, and now is the perfect time to take stock of the medal count. Granted, we're still only a third of the way through the competition, but some countries have already distinguished themselves from the pack, while others are failing to meet their projected success.
Without further ado, here is the 2014 Sochi Olympics Medal count, as of Day 6 of the Winter Games:

These 22 countries have won a medal so far, though much will change in the coming weeks. Still, Norway is making quite an impressive showing with its 12-medal lead.
So how about the U.S.? Team USA is currently in the fourth place with seven total medals; both of its two gold medals are from slopestyle snowboarding (men's and women's competitions). It has a silver and a bronze from freestyle skiing (women's slopestyle and women's moguls), and a bronze each from alpine skiing (women's super-combined slalom), figure skating (team ice dance free dance) and luge (women's singles).
That's right: five of the seven medals that Team USA currently has are thanks to our badass female athletes (they also deserve half the credit for the team figure skating medal). Here's to hoping that they continue to take names, own the competition and do our country proud.
