The XXIII Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang
saw Norway win most gold, silver and bronze medals. Athletes from the Scandinavian country added 39 medals to Norway's all-time medal count, now standing at 368. This means they have overtaken previously 2nd placed Russia, who is still ahead counting gold medals only. Germany has a comfortable overall lead with 408 winter medals. Germany and Russia have one thing in common: both have changed the set-up of their state since the first games in 1924.
Here, we count in all medals German teams have acquired, from Nazi Germany, to Germany divided in to East and West and after reunification in 1990. For Russia, we go back to the Soviet Union, count in the one-off Unified Team's medals in 1992 and those won this year as the 'Olympic Athletes from Russia' in Pyeongchang. Russian Athletes were barred to take part under the Russian flag because of the doping scandal that overshadowed the previous Winter Olympic Games in the Russian resort of Sochi in 2014.
