Norway set a Winter Olympics record by finishing Winter Olympics with 39 total medals - 14 gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze medals, while Germany took the second place (14-10-7), leaving behind Canada (11-8-10).

Russia grabbed 17 medals- 2 gold, 6 silver and 9 bronze medals and took the 13th place.

Armenia had three representatives at Pyeongchang-2018 - skiers Mikayel Mikayelyan, Katya Galstyan and alpine skier Ashot Karapetyan.
