The 2014 Sochi Olympics are well underway in Russia, and the medals count is adding up for countries around the world, according to a Feb. 11 SB Nation report, the race is heating up with Team USA continuing to come up short in many Winter Olympic competitions. People in the U.S. can watch the entire Olympics live on TV on NBC Sports Network or via live stream video at NBCOlympics.com.
However, each day begins around 3 a.m. EST, so not everybody will be awake for that. If you prefer to wait until the evening, NBC broadcasts a tape delay of the day's key performances each day from 3 to 5 p.m. EST and from 8 to 11:30 p.m. EST each weekday. It is tough to avoid spoilers with so much coverage and headlines surrounding the Sochi 2014 Olympics. You have to be vigilant to avoid being spoiled each day.
Norway leads the 2014 Sochi Olympics medals count with 11 overall broken down with four gold medals, three silver medals, and four bronze medals. Checking in at second place after Tuesday's competitions is Canada with 9 medals overall broken down to four golds, three silvers, and two bronze.
