Some of its athletes were permitted to compete under the designation "Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation", but weren't allowed to display the country's flag on their uniforms, and no national anthem was played if they won medals. Kim didn't make this accomplishment at the 2018 Winter Olympics though - she was actually only 15 years old when she landed the trick. Many other Norwegian medal winners had already traveled home. She collected two bronzes, in the 10km freestyle and the team sprint with Maiken Caspersen Falla, and a silver in the skiathlon.
Anarchy is an uneasy bedfellow with the all-conquering Olympic movement, but the Winter Games always seem to sit in some way separate from the interminable cycle of fund-and-reward which blights so many major sporting events, and these last two weeks have been no different. The Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation maintained a small lead on the U.S., with eight bronze and three silver medals.
The International Olympic Committee re-affirmed the integrity of the Games' electronic systems but said little beyond that, declining to reveal the source of the attack. For the first time in 46 years, USA figure skaters did not win a gold or silver medal.

Kwak also said being the elder statesman on his team, especially in a sport that always carries high expectations, was stressful at times. Some officials also aired their concern that Russian Federation may also attempt to disrupt today's Closing Ceremonies. "The women win a gold in Rio and they've knocked the news off the screens and girls are flooding into women's hockey clubs".
Eleven out of the 23 athletes on the silver medal winning women's hockey team are from Ontario including Fast, Jenner, Meghan Agosta, Laura Fortino, Haley Irwin, Rebecca Johnston, Genevieve Lacasse, Sarah Nurse, Natalie Spooner, Laura Stacey and Jennifer Wakefield.
From Lindsey Vonn taking bronze and becoming the winningest female alpine skier, to the men's curling team winning historic gold - it was quite a run for Team USA in South Korea. It was also the 39th medal for Norway, a winter Olympic record.
"This is a way to develop better future of our country's sports", he said.
Instead, the IOC allowed 168 Russian athletes to compete as the Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR) team under a neutral flag, provided they could prove there were clean.
The host nation ended the games in seventh place with 17 medals.
