Keeping up with the 2014 Sochi medal count is a source of national pride for Americans and, as it turns out, for Utahn’s too.

Sage Kotsenburg of Park City won the very first Sochi 2014 gold medal in snowboard, men’s slopestyle event.

Following Kotsenburg’s gold, Kaitlyn Farrington (Salt Lake City) and Joss Christensen (Park City) each also won gold in snowboard, women’s halfpipe and freestyle skiing, men’s slopestyle.

Then, Orem’s Noelle Pikus-Pace and Park City’s Steve Holcomb won silver and bronze in women’s skeleton and men’s 2-man bobsled events.

As of Tuesday, Feb. 18, Utah collectively, would be ranked 17th, if it and its athletes, were its own country.

Here’s the breakdown.
