Winter Olympics 2018 medal count: Norway leads all countries with eight

Norway's Kjetil Jansrud competes in men's downhill training at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Jeongseon, South Korea, Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018. Here's the latest on the medal standings.

The United States and Canada also both medaled in the team figure skating event, only this time it was the Canadians capturing gold while the Americans settled for bronze behind the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

Sweden's Charlotte Kalla got the first gold of the entire 2018 Winter Olympics in the 15-kilometer cross-country skiathlon. The figure skating team event ended with the United States in third, adding a bronze medal to their total. The biggest performance of the night was a historic one from women's figure skater Mirai Nagusa.

Always considered a contender when it comes to Winter Olympics, Norway has nabbed a gold medal in Men's Cross-Country Skiing, as well as four silver and three bronze medals.

New Horizons probe captures images at record distance from Earth
New Horizons is the first NASA spacecraft to fly by Pluto and the fifth to speed beyond the outer planets. This image is, for now, one of the farthest pictures from Earth ever captured by a spacecraft.

The United States is fifth in total medals right now, but don't worry. The Netherlands are in second, with five total medals, including two gold.

However, it is still Norway atop the medal counter, and it is largely because of one event in particular. 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. Sven Kramer won the men's 5000m in speed skating for the Netherlands. The qualifying was cancelled due to strong winds. The giant slalom has been rescheduled for Thursday. Medals for the women's 1500m will be awarded during this period as well.

Norway has three silver medals and one bronze medal, while one athlete made history.
