Olympics Medal Count 2010: Gold Medal Count 2010 – US Olympics medal count is six, and three winners are from Utah. In the first two days of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada the US has won six medals. Three of those six medals have been won by Utah athletes, and another lives in Utah part-time. The US medals won so far are 1 gold, 2 silver, and 3 bronze.
The most successful Alpine skier in U.S. history with 32 World Cup wins, Miller is back to compete at the Winter Games and seeking to improve on the two silver medals he won at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. He’ll start eighth with the chance to set an early pace in today’s race, which was rescheduled after several weather delays in Whistler, British Columbia.
“When I entered the season I wasn’t in great shape, but I feel like I’m coming to these Games in the unique position of getting stronger,” Miller told reporters in Vancouver. “I’m psyched. I’m ready to win.”
The U.S. has won six medals through the first two days of competition — one gold, two silver and three bronze. Germany is second with four medals, followed by France and Canada with three.
Germany, favored to win the most medals coming into the Olympics, collected its first title of the Games as Felix Loch, 20, won the men’s singles luge. The victory came two days after Nodar Kumaritashvili, a luger from the country of Georgia, was killed in a high-speed crash on a training run.
Six gold medals will be awarded today, including those in women’s 10-kilometer cross-country skiing, men’s 15-kilometer cross-country, men’s snowboard cross, pairs figure skating and men’s 500-meter speedskating.
For the events in which medals have been awarded thus far, I’ve then compared the projected medal winners against the actual ones. You can see how each country is performing against its forecast in the ‘variance’ column down below.
For example, the United States was originally projected to have won 2.7 medals in the events that have taken place to date, but we’ve actually won 6, meaning that we’re 3-4 medals ahead of pace. I’ve then added back in the consensus projections for the remaining events to produce a revised forecast.
