Lost amidst all the hockey chaos on Saturday – T.J. Oshie and Team USA did something pretty cool – were a handful of other events handing out medals. The Americans didn't fare too well, though they were able to claim a bronze medal to stay right behind Russia in the overall medal count.
With all of Saturday's events in the books, Russia holds 15 medals after claiming two gold and a silver. Of those 15 total medals, four are gold, six are silver and five are bronze. Team USA (four gold, three silver, seven bronze) and the Netherlands (4G, 4S, 6B) sit right behind the Russians with 14 apiece.
Norway sits in fourth place with 13 medals. Germany and Canada and Sweden are tied for fifth with 12 medals, and Sweden has eight.
In ski jumping, Poland's Kamil Stoch won his second gold medal of the games, winning the men's individual large hill event by a narrow margin with a score of 278.7. Japan's 41-year-old Noriaki Kasai finished second at 277.4, and Slovenia's Peter Prevc took the bronze. Poland now has four gold medals in these games.
That lone bronze medal for the United States came from Matthew Antoine in the skeleton. Antoine edged Tomass Dukurs of Latvia to finish third behind Russia's Alexander Tretiakov and Latvia's Martins Dukurs (Tomass' younger brother). Many thought fellow American John Daly would have a good chance to medal, but he slipped at the start of his fourth run and finished in 15th.
Anna Fenninger of Austria won gold in the women's skiing super-G. Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany took home silver, while Nicole Hosp of Austria won bronze.
In cross-country skiing, Sweden's women's 4x5 team won gold as they finished 0.53 seconds ahead of Finland and 0.89 seconds ahead of Germany.
Medals in two short track skating events were awarded. On the men's side, hometown favorites Victor An and Vladimir Grigorev of Russia won gold and silver in the 1000m finals, respectively. Sjinkie Knegt of the Netherlands won bronze. The women's 1500m had Zhou Yang of China come out on top, with Shim Suk-Hee of Korea winning silver and Arianna Fontana of Italy getting bronze.
In speed skating, the race of the day was decided by three-thousandths of a second. Zbigniew Brodka (1:45.006) beat the Netherlands' Koen Verweij (1:45.009) in the blink of an eye to win the gold medal for Poland. Denny Morrison (1:45.22) took home bronze for Canada. Shani Davis of Team USA continued to struggle, finishing 11th overall.
