There is just one day remaining in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, and that means the medal standings are now more important than ever. Through the finals events that took place on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, the Russian Federation moved up into first place with 29 overall medals. They also are tied for the lead in gold medals with 11.

For the first day in these Winter Olympics, the United States did not earn a single medal, but they stayed in second place with 27 overall. Norway is in third place with 26 overall medals, and they are also tied for the gold medal lead with 11.

Canada and the Netherlands round out the top five as they are tied with 24 overall medals each. Germany has moved up a little though as they now have upped their total count to 19.

Some of the highlights from the 15th day of the winter games:

  • USA got shut out in the bronze medal game of men's hockey by Finland
  • Great Britain stayed in contention for a bobsleigh medal to come on Sunday
  • The Netherlands took gold in both men's and women's speed skating team pursuit
  • Austria's Mario Mats took gold in the men's slalom
  • Vic Wild of Russia won the gold medal in men's parallel snowboard
  • Norway swept the medals for women's cross country

Once again, another day in which no new countries ended up taking a medal. It has now been over a week where 26 countries have won a medal without anyone new stepping onto the podium.

Remember that Sochi is nine hours ahead of the Eastern time zone for the United States. That means the day's events are officially completed, but won't be shown until prime time television for America.

Below is a small legend showing the meaning of each letter in the medal count standings below and for each country. If a particular medal has not been won yet, it is left out.
