Norway is leading the medal tally with 36 medals in total at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Currently, Norway, with 13 gold, 13 silver and 10 bronze medals and standing far away from other world's power blocs such as Germany and United States. Germany has currently bagged 25 medals and the USA has 21 medals in total. Though Germany and Norway have the equal number of gold medals but the total tally is very different, Norway leads the way with a margin of 11 medals in total.

Most of the American media is confused that how a country with a population of five million, is beating nations with comparatively high population and more sound infrastructure and facilities.

The USA has shown mediocre results at the Pyeongchang Olympics 2018 and this might a situation when the USA needs to stop comparing the results of Summer Olympics with Winter Olympics and invest more in facilitating Winter sports.
