The 2022 Winter Olympics Come to a Close in Beijing With Norway On Top of Medal Count

The most controversial Winter Olympics in recent memory is in the books. China’s closing ceremonies were a sight to behold on Sunday in Beijing, but the overall consensus was a brigade of COVID-19 challenges, another Russian doping scandal and China’s host duties under the microscope. Norway ended the Winter Games with the most medals (37) and the most golds (16) of any country in competition. The United States finished fifth with only 25 medals, including just eight golden moments.
