The Norwegians are dominant at the Winter Olympics.

Since the first Winter Games in 1924, Norway has taken home 303 total medals, including 107 gold, 106 silver and 90 bronze medals. No other nation in the world has more than 100 gold medals, although the United States sit at 87 entering the 2014 Games and have a chance to pass the 100-gold threshold.

Skiing events have been very kind to Norway throughout their history. 96 of their 303 medals have come in cross-country skiing, including 35 gold.

Here's a full look at the all-time medal count. All numbers are accurate as off the start of the Sochi Games. For the 2014 medal count, check SB Nation's constantly-updated Olympic Medal Tracker.
