Winter Olympics Sets Record For Most Condoms Given Out

However, organizers say they have no concerns about fitting in the 10 remaining gold medal races before the end of the Games on February 25.

The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, is underway and numerous world's top athletes are competing for the gold medal.

High-speed gusts and flying debris have been responsible for 16 injuries to staff and fans in PyeongChang as wind continues to wreak havoc on the Olympics.

The United States has been dominant in snowboarding events.

Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford put themselves in a good spot for a potential medal after finishing third in the pairs figure skating short program with a score of 76.82.
