The eighth full day of medal events at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi are over, and there is a new leader at the top of the medal standings. The host Russian Federation has stepped into the medal standings lead with 15 overall as the events of Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014, have come to a close.

There is a tie for second place as the United States and the Netherlands are tied for second with 14 overall medals. Norway is right behind them with 13 while Germany and Canada are right behind with 12 overall medals a piece.

Germany is leading the way so far with gold medals as they have collected seven. Switzerland has five gold medals out of their seven overall.

The leaders are truly starting to distance themselves, and this is the second day in a row where no new countries have won a medal of any kind.
