Olympic Update

The Winter Olympics got underway on Friday evening with the Opening Ceremonies from Turin, Italy (Yes it is "Turin" in English, not "Torino")

After the first weekend of competition, the Norweigians have lapped the field with 7 total medals. However, only one of Norway's medals is of the Gold flavor. The United States is tied with host nation Italy, Russia and the Netherlands for second place with 3 medals each. The U.S. is tied for 1st place in the Gold medal count with 2 Golds so far. Germany also has 2 Golds, their only medals so far.

You can follow the medal count here, since we all know the Olympics are really about who comes home with most doughnuts.
