However, it is still Norway atop the medal counter, and it is largely because of one event in particular.

The United States picked up their first gold medal when 17-year-old Red Gerard won the Men's Slopestyle event on Saturday.

Katie Ormerod was an outside shot for gold either in the slopestyle or the big air but suffered two bad training falls, breaking first her wrist and then more seriously her heel, forcing her withdrawal.

As the second day of competition got underway in PyeongChang, medals were handed out in eight more events and ten more countries climbed into the medal count race.

-Ski jumping: Sarah Hendrickson will be the top competitor for the U.S.in women's normal hill as she looks to take take down reigning gold medalist Carina Vogt of Germany (11:00 a.m., NBCSN / 3 p.m. NBC). Simen Hegstad Krueger won gold with a time of one hour, 16 minutes and 20 seconds, Martin Johnsrud Sundby took home silver at 1:16:28, and Hans Christer Holund captured bronze at 1:16:30.

Canada, while still looking for its first gold medal, has managed to rack up four medals as well, with three silver and one bronze.

The United States and Germany are just off the hypothetical podium in fourth place with four medals.

-Alpine skiing: Men will compete in downhill skiing (Live starting at 8 p.m., NBC). It is a close battle, though, as Canada is in second with six medals, and Netherlands sits in third with five. David Gleirscher won gold in the men's singles luge for Austria. Marit Bjoergen won the silver medal in women's category of the same event.

Early in the morning on Monday, at least in the United States, medals will awarded in the women's 10km pursuit and men's 12.5km pursuit in the sport of biathlon. The final run of women's halfpipe is scheduled to take place at 9 p.m. ET.
