US snowboarder Chloe Kim's victory in the halfpipe brought the national team gold at the Beijing Olympics and changed the placement in the medal table. Now the US team has bypassed the Russians, pushing them to ninth place. The Americans moved up to sixth place.

The German team remains in first place with five gold and three silver medals. On the second - Norway, which has four golds, two silvers and four bronzes. Closes the top three Sweden with four gold medals, one silver and two bronze.

The Russian team has two golds, three silvers and six bronze medals. Ahead of her are also Italy, Austria, the USA, China, the Netherlands, as well as the top three.

In terms of the number of awards, the Russian team is in first place.

It's worth reminding that the day before, the Russian national curling team lost to rivals from the United States in the match of the circular stage of the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing. The meeting ended with a minimum margin of 6:5.

Moreover, the Russian figure skaters again began to have problems with the definition of doping in the test. Because of this, the solemn ceremony of awarding figure skaters had to be postponed. The problem concerns a sample that one of the Russian athletes passed before the start of the Olympic Games.

The Olympics are being held in Beijing from 4 to 20 February.
