Day 1 of the 2014 Winter Olympics is officially in the books, and although the event is only a few days old, plenty of medals were handed out on Saturday in Sochi, Russia.

Fans in the United States got swept up in men's snowboard slopestyle, as Sage Kotsenburg brought home gold, being the first American to do so in these Olympics, per Sochi 2014:

Kotsenburg was joined by Hannah Kearneythe other American to earn a medal with her third-place finish in women's moguls. However, the 2010 gold medalist couldn't hide her dissatisfaction on Twitter:

In the grander scheme of things, Norway and the Netherlands were the big winners on the day.

The Norwegians top the medal count, having picked up four medals on Saturday, while the Dutch are right on their heels, with three.

Here's a look at the medal tally after Day 1:

Speaking of the Netherlands, it swept the men's 5,000 meters in speedskating. Sven Kramer won gold, Jan Blokhuijsen earned silver and Jorrit Bergsma took home gold. Kramer, in particular, was very impressive, as he set an Olympic record with a time of six minutes and 10.76 seconds.

As you'd expect from an Olympic champion, Kramer wasn't at a loss for confidence, per Sally Jenkins of The Washington Post. He said, "I was the only man who could lose this race."

When you're the best at what you do, you're entitled to be a bit brash.

Some of the events to take note of from Saturday are those under the team figure skating umbrella—ice dance short dance, ladies' short program and pairs free skating. Those results all go toward the final tally, which will determine which countries earn medals.

Through four events, Russia is on top, with 47 points. Canada and the U.S. round out the top three. Italy is knocking on the door as well, only three points back from the United States. Although the Russians are likely to run away from the competition, it will be a fun race to see who can earn silver and bronze.

In what was an action-packed Saturday, here are the final results.
