Are the medal numbers on CBC correct?

If so, Russia is absolutely crushing the competition. 47 medals, second place has 14. They have more golds (16) than any nation has total medals.

Yup. They have taken a medal in every biathlon and every event except one in Xcountry skiing.
medal results.

spy events obviously...

I was bummed they beat the US in hockey, but man, it was great to see the reactions from the team and fans. Russia doubled their athletes from the Vancouver Paralympic games and it's def showing.

They all deserve such applause to overcome their various disabilities. Brings tears to the eyes.

Kelly Gallagher with her guide Charlotte Evans claimed our first ever Paralympic gold as well.

Russia dominated. I was shocked by the 80 total medals. That is 55 more medals than the second place finisher, Ukraine.
