Using Gold count
3 golds are the most of any nation (Save netherlands, who has 3 because Speed Skating)
Canada wins "tiebreaker" with more S than Netherlands.
Although tomorrow proves to be likely a slower day for Canada, threats in Luge (Gough in 5th, McRae in 6th) and Ski Slopestyle (Howell ranked #2 in the world), not to mention an outside shot at halfpipe and the ladies' 500 mean we could be leaders for another couple of days. Unlikely, because speed skating and the Netherlands, but eh. We have pairs skating coming up, and that should be some sort of medal.
Kaya Turski's the favorite in slopestyle. She's been dominant and won the X-Games 4 of the last 5 years. The only question mark is that's she's coming off knee surgery but if she's in top form she'll be tough to beat. So chance for a double medal performance again there with Howell.
Alex Harvey is a contender in cross-country tomorrow as well.
They're probably the best shots at a medal with Gough probably needing a few things to break her way to move up.
