Washington Olympic Medalists in Sochi, 2014

The 2014 Olympics in Sochi are over* and our Washington athletes will pack for home.  Three of them will have medals in their luggage.  After posting our 2014 Olympians list earlier this month, we dutifully tracked the competition schedule and results each day — medal or otherwise. Now that the Games are over, we present the final Washington tally: 2 gold1 silver, and 1 bronze.  The two gold medals went to a White Salmon man who snowboarded for Russia, the host country and his wife’s homeland. Our four total medals matched Great Britain. If our state was a country, it would snuggle into 16th place between Slovenia and Japan in the typical medal standings (where medals are ranked by total gold, then silver, then bronze).  That’s not bad for a state!
