Russia and the United States are now tied atop the overall medal standings as Day 11 of the Sochi Olympics continues, with Norway and Canada pressing close. Nobody has gotten near Germany's seven gold medals yet, but Norway and Switzerland have five and Canada, the United States, and Russia have four apiece.

Sunday began with the Women's Snowboard Cross, where the mustachioed Eva Samkova won her first career gold medal over Dominique Maltais of Canada and Chloe Trespeuch of France. The American favorite Lindsey Jacobellis faltered in the semifinals and was not able to get to the final, paving the way for Samkova's dominant performance. The Czech came in first in her qualifying heat as well as her quarterfinal and semifinal heats and obviously the finals.

Shortly after the snowboarders, the Men's Super G had its final competition. Kjetil Jansrud of Norway won the race comfortably to get his gold medal, and American Andrew Weibrecht came in second place for the silver. There was a tie for the bronze, as Bode Miller was able to get his first medal of the Games in his fourth competition, tying Canadian Jan Hudec down to the hundredth point of the clock. Weibrecht and Miller have given the Americans their only medals of the day so far.

The Men's 4x10km Cross-Country is an endurance affair, and one traditionally dominated by the Scandinavians. Sunday would prove no different, as the Swedish foursome got a gold medal for their 1:28:42.0 time. The Russian team would get the silver medal, coming in at 1:29:09.4 (+27.3) while the French men got a bronze medal for their 1:29:13.9 (+31.9) effort. The Norwegians were the only other team to come in under 90 minutes, and the Americans came in 11th with a 1:33:15.1 time.

So far on the day, both the Americans and the Canadians have received a silver and a bronze, while France received two bronzes. Norway, Sweden, and Czech Republic have received the three golds proffered out so far, whereas Russia has gotten a silver medal. The two for the Red, White and Blue put them in a tie atop the overall medal count with Russia (who are also red, white and blue, but that's besides the point) at 16, but Germany's incredible performance in the luge have them atop the gold medal count with seven.
