Two days into the Beijing Olympics, the nations to watch have begun to distinguish themselves as medals begin to be handed out and tallied up: As of Saturday night, Norway currently leads the way with two gold medals, followed by Slovenia with a gold and a bronze and Italy with two silvers.
The United States has yet to win a medal, but will have some opportunities in mixed doubles curling competition. The U.S. will first go against the Switzerland round robin in curling at 7 a.m., and then play again by taking on Great Britain at 8 p.m.
Day 3 will also see the finals in Men's speeding skating and ski jumping, as well as Women's moguls skiing.
