After they finally got their first gold medal on Wednesday, the United States already has two more to add to the total on Thursday thanks to Chloe Kim and Nathan Chen.

Kim captured the gold in the halfpipe snowboarding event, her second consecutive victory in the discipline.

Later in the day, Chen dominated the field to capture the gold medal in men's figure skating, doing so in record-breaking fashion.

The medals give the United States nine medals in all, leaving them alone in fourth place on the board.

Over 300 medals will be awarded to Olympians participating in the 2022 Winter Games. With 15 sports and 109 events, ranging from skiing to bobsledding to figure skating, world-class athletes will go for gold during a two-week global competition on the grandest stage.

The United States came to Beijing with the second-most Winter Olympics medals with 305.

Here are the top nations in the medal count so far:

1 ROC – 11 (2 Gold, 3 Silver, 6 Bronze)

2 Austria – 10 (2 Gold, 4 Silver, 4 Bronze)

2 Norway - 10 (4 Gold, 2 Silver, 4 Bronze)

4 USA - 9 (3 Gold, 5 Silver, 1 Bronze)

5 Germany – 8 (5 Gold, 3 Silver)

5 Canada – 8 (1 Gold, 2 Silver, 5 Bronze)

The Russian Olympic Committee currently leads the medal count with 11 total.

Right behind are Norway and Austria with 10 total.

Germany has eight total, but leads all nations with five goal medals.

The three-time Olympian took home bronze, while her teammate Rosie Brennan came in fourth.

How is Team USA Doing?

Lindsey Jacobellis slid to victory in the women's snowboard cross, putting an end to Team USA's five-day gold-less streak at the Winter Olympics in Beijing.

Snowboarder Julia Marino won the United States’ first medal on Saturday, but it was not gold. Madison Chock and Evan Bates added another silver medal to the team's count after their stunning galactic-themed ice dance Sunday night.

Jaelin Kauf won the Olympic silver behind Australia's Jakara Anthony during the women's moguls finals, and Ryan Cochran-Siegle clinched another silver medal, adding to the USA's total count, in men's super-G, on Tuesday.

Jessie Diggins secured the fifth medal for Team USA - the bronze in women's individual sprint, cross-country skiing. She made history here, becoming the first American to win a medal in the cross-country skiing individual sprint event.

The U.S. endured five days of grueling competition - with some disappointing upsets - to finally bring home a gold medal.

Alpine Skier Ryan Cochran-Siegle took home a silver medal in the Super-G on Monday, 50 years after his mom Barbara Cochran won gold at the 1972 Winter Olympics.
