Current Olympic Medal Count; Plus, Few Celebrities Spotted at Sochi Winter Games

Tennis star Maria Sharapova, who is originally from Sochi, was one of the more notable figures in attendance during the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony 2014 on Feb. 7. Sharapova was one of the final torchbearers to carry the Olympic flame, though she didn't actually bring the fire to the cauldron. (See photo above.)

Former American figure skater and gold-medalist Tara Lapinski and bronze-medalist Johnny Weir are also in Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympics, acting as correspondents for NBC.

In addition to celebrity athletes, 44 heads of state from around the world were on hand to watch the elaborate start to this year's Sochi Olympics. President Obama and the First Lady are not among the world leaders who have attended the Games so far. First Lady of outer space, Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, was on hand for the start of the Games, however; she helped carry the Olympic flag during the Opening Ceremony.

Updated Feb. 10: Team USA has won two gold medals and three bronze medals so far, as of print time. That means Team USA is currently in fourth place for total 2014 Winter Olympics medal wins, behind Canada, Netherlands and Norway. (Canada, Norway, and the Netherlands teams are currently tied in terms of total medals, leading with seven medals each.)

It will be interesting to see how the rest of competition goes - we will try to update this article as the medal count changes (no promises!), but you should be able to click the above link at any time to get an up-to-the-minute Olympic medal count, especially the Team USA tally!
