Which Country Dominates Each Winter Olympic Sport

The United States of America always has a great showing at the Olympics. Our athletes are seen in the majority of competitions…but we aren’t the best at everything. Even the great Shawn White wasn’t able to bring home a medal this year – U.S.A. overall does tend to dominate the snowboarding events. So, which country dominates each Winter Olympic sport?

Here are the stats from 1980 until now.

  • Germany – 37% of all luge medals and 55% of the golds.
  • Russia – 34% of all figure skating and ice dancing medals and 54% of the golds.
