Update: Medal count after all of Saturday's events

Three events have been decided in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and the medal tally is starting to take shape.

Team USA took home the first gold of the games with Sage Kotsenburg  winning the Men's Slopestyle snowboarding. It was a somewhat controversial result in Canada, with snowboarding fans complaining that countryman Mark McMorris was unfairly scored for a difficult run.

The Netherlands dominated indoor with a 1-2-3 finish in the 5000m speed skating, including an Olympic record by Sven Kramer who won gold in the 2010 Vancouver games in the same event.

Norway diversified their medal tally across two sports, taking home gold and bronze in Ladies' Skiathlon while Staale Sandbrech won silver in the Men's Slopestyle event.

You can follow along with our medal tracker, updated live as events conclude. Here's a full standing of the medal winning countries at Sochi thus far.

Norway 1 1 1 3
Netherlands 1 1 1 3
