Even though some of the big-time events officially began this past Thursday, the opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi didn't go down until Friday night. It was on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, that the first medal events took place and it meant that there was going to be someone out front in the 2014 Winter Olympic medal count standings.

UPDATE: Updated standings after second full day of medal events at 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

The United States has two medals so far with the first being gold won by Sage Kotsenberg in Slopestyle snowboarding.

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.
