The 2014 Winter Olympics continued Feb. 9 with day two of competition from Sochi, Russia. Although 17 different nations from around the world added to their respective medal counts during the eight different final events contested, home nation Russia had the best day of all as its athletes scored four of the 24 podium finishes awarded, according to data posted to the Games' official website.

Russia scored its first gold medal of the 2014 Olympics in the newly implemented figure skating team event, which featured a pair of dominant performances by 15-year old rising star Julia Lipnitskaia. Russian athletes also won silver medals in men's singles luge and the women's 7.5 km sprint, and a bronze in ladies' speed skating.

Norway earned the second-highest number of medals on day two with three podium finishes that included bronze medals in the men's downhill, the men's skiathlon 15 km classic and 15 km free, and and normal hill men's ski jumping.

The United States and Italy tied with two medals apiece. While Italy claimed silver in the men's downhill and bronze in men's luge, Jamie Anderson of the U.S. won the Olympic debut of the women's slopestyle snowboard event, while the nation's figure skating team earned a bronze medal thanks to dominant Feb. 9 performances by national champion Gracie Gold and world champion ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White.

The remaining 13 nations earned one medal apiece. The winners included Austria, whose alpine skier Matthias Mayer captured unexpected gold in the men's downhill; Canada; the Czech Republic; Finland; Germany, whose luge star Felix Loch won gold; Great Britain; the Netherlands, who speed skater Irene Wust took gold in the ladies' 3,000 meter distance; Poland, whose Kamil Stoch secured gold in men's ski jumping; Slovakia, whose biathlete Anastasiya Kuzmina won the women's 7.5 km sprint; Slovenia; Sweden; Switzerland, whose Dario Cologna won the men's cross country skiathlon event; and Ukraine.

The 2014 Winter Olympics medal count will change yet again as action from Sochi continues Feb. 10.
