After day six of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, medal standings posted to the Games' official website on Feb. 13 revealed that although Norway still sits atop the heap with 13 total podium finishes, the United States is just a single medal away from taking a share of the lead.

Despite ranking just fourth on the Feb. 12 medal count leader board, Team USA catapulted into a tie for second place on day six with a grand total of 12 podium finishes, thanks to a sweep by freeskiers Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy, and Nick Goepper in the first-ever men's Olympic slopestyle skiing event. The Americans share the number two spot with the Netherlands, whose athletes continued to dominate long track speedskating in Sochi on Feb. 13 with silver and bronze medal finishes in the women's 1,000 meters for Irene Wust and Margot Boer.

Russia sits alone in fourth place with 11 medals, while Germany, which has the most gold medals of all with seven, is tied with Canada for fifth place with 10 each. Austria and Sweden follow in the seven-spot with five apiece, while three nations --Switzerland, France, and Slovenia-- are tied for ninth with four medals each.

China, the Czech Republic, Japan, and Italy are tied for 12th place with three medals each, while Poland, Korea, and Latvia's two medals apiece tie them for the 16th spot on the leader board.

Finally, six nations have a share of 19th place with one medal win each. Included are Slovakia, Belarus, Australia, Finland, Great Britain, and Ukraine.

Day seven action from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi is scheduled for Feb. 14, and will feature another six medal round finals in figure skating, skeleton, freestyle skiing, biathlon, cross country, and alpine skiing events.
