Top medaillewinnende landen op Winterspelen

By Chris Dinsdale

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - The 2022 winter Olympic Games, officially known as the XXIV Olympic Winter Games, take place in Beijing, China.

Norway leads all-time ranking with haul of over 350 medals, winning 132 golds, and topped medal table for record eighth time in 2018, ahead of Germany and Canada.

In Beijing, there will be 109 medal events, with at least 327 medals being awarded in total.

The medals, named “Tong Xin” or ”together as one”, are composed of rings and a centre, based on the ancient Chinese jade concentric circle pendants, with five rings embodying the Chinese philosophy of harmony between heaven, earth and human beings.

The design echoes the jade-inlaid medals of the Olympic Summer Games of 2008, as Beijing becomes the first “dual Olympic city” to host both summer and winter Games.
