Well, to no surprise, Norway continued its Winter Olympics domination. Norway, which entered with the most Winter Olympic medals of all time (368), added another 37 in Beijing. The Norwegians also racked up a record number of golds with 16.

Norway's Therese Johaug won the women’s skiathlon for the first gold medal of the Games, and she claimed one of the last golds in Beijing with her victory in the 30km mass start.

With three golds, Johaug was one of Norway’s 11 multi-time medalists at the 2022 Games. Norwegian biathletes Johannes Thingnes Boe and Marte Olsbu Roeiseland tied with French biathlete Quentin Fillon Maillet and ROC cross-country skier Alexander Bolshunov for most medals won by a single athlete in Beijing with five. Boe, now an eight-time Olympic medalist, had the most golds in Beijing with four.

After picking up a men’s hockey silver, the ROC came in second behind Norway with 32 total medals. The ROC, which was the only other team to eclipse the 30-medal mark, tied with Canada for the most bronze medals with 14.

Germany had three podium finishes on the final day of competition, including gold and silver in the four-man bobsled, to jump into third place with 27 medals. Other than Norway, Germany was the only country to win double-digit golds (12).

Canada, which won a four-man bobsled bronze on Day 16, finished in fourth with 26 medals.

The United States came in fifth with 25 medals (eight gold, 10 silver and seven bronze). Team USA tied with Sweden and Netherlands for the fourth-most golds and tied with Germany for the second-most silver medals.

Jessie Diggins earned the only Day 16 medal for the U.S. with a silver in the 30km mass start. Mikaela Shiffrin and Co. nearly picked up another medal in the mixed team event, but they were defeated by Norway in the bronze medal matchup. Diggins, Lindsey Jacobellis, Nathan Chen, Zachary Donohue, Madison Hubbell and Elana Meyers Taylor were Team USA’s multi-time medalists in Beijing, each winning two.

Sweden, Austria and Japan tied for sixth with 18 medals apiece, while Netherlands and Italy tied for ninth with 17 apiece. 

The host country of China came in 11th with 15 medals. China did earn the third-most golds with nine, thanks in large part to Eileen Gu’s two first-place finishes in freestyle skiing (Gu added a silver medal, too).

Here’s a look at the final medal count for the Beijing Games:

How does Team USA’s performance at the 2022 Winter Olympics compare to past Games?

Compared to the 2018 PyeongChang Games, Team USA performed slightly better in terms of total medals and slightly worse in terms of golds. The United States earned two more total medals and one less gold than in 2018. Team USA finished fourth in both golds and medals at the PyeongChang Olympics.

The 25 total medals won in Beijing are the most for the U.S. at a Winter Olympics since taking 28 at the 2014 Sochi Games.
