    Two people fell. But they were way behind. The winner was South Korean and second was a Dutch dude. They deserved it, they were up front the whole way.

    That’s awesome.

    Hey he qualified for the finals. Crashes are a big part of short track speed skating.

    It’s a fun sport to watch every 4 years.

    That women’s sprint cross country race was nuts. The race only took like 3minutes. But these women were flying through what looked like a difficult course!

    Them Scandinavians, though. Between them, the Dutch, and our hat, some truly impressive stuff has been done. I had no idea how good the Dutch were at winter sports.

    It's got something to do with scheduling as well.

    If you're incredibly dominant in just one or two sports (e.g. skating) and those happen to come early in the program, it's going to appear like you're unbeatable in the medal table for the first couple of days.

    There will be a total of 102 gold medals handed out this year. The current table adds up to 27 gold, meaning that as of day 4 we're 26% into the race.

    I would probably wait until at least 50% of medals have been handed out until I make any hard predictions on what the final table might look like.
