Norway sets medal record in winter Olympic Games

Norway broke the U.S. record for the number of medals in a winter Olympic Games.

Norway's third-place finish in the new Alpine skiing team event at the Pyeongchang Games has given the country a record 38 medals at a single Winter Olympics.

Norway leads the medals table with 13 gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze. That breaks the record set at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics by the Americans, who won 37 medals.

Norwegian Alpine skier Nina Haver-Loeseth says her teammates have been "doing so well and you're standing there and you're watching them on the podium and it's just a really nice feeling yourself. So that kind of pushed us to just give it our all."

Norway's previous best medal haul at the Winter Olympics was 26, which they won at the 1994 Lillehammer Games and the 2014 Sochi Games.
