Winter Olympic Games Medals

At the Winter Olympic Games, like at the Summer Olympics, the first three place getters receive gold, silver and bronze medals respectively. We often judge success at the Olympics by the number of medals won, by individuals and by countries.

Norway holds the record for total medals at a single edition of the Winter Olympics, setting a new record of 39 medals at the 2018 Winter Olympics, which beat the previous record of 37 medals won by the United States at the 2010 Winter Olympics.
