If you’re anything like me, the Winter Olympics have consumed your life this month. I feel like today’s the first day I’ve put on real-people-pants and ventured out into society since the games began. It can be a little tricky to keep track of who’s in first given the amount of events that take place each and everyday so here’s a handy little round-up to help you straighten out the current standings. Note: I’ve done the standings by GOLD medal count, not overall medal count. Okay here we go. Starting with number 10:
