Saturday may have been marked down as a failure in the books of many Russian fans because of the loss by the men's hockey team to the United States in a shootout, but the host nation had a strong day in the medal events. 

The Russians earned two gold medals and a silver on Day 8 of competition as Victor An and Alexander Tretiakov celebrated wins in the men's short-track 1,000 meters and men's skeleton. 

With those two golds and the silver earned by Vladimir Grigorev in short-trac, the hosts catapulted over Norway in the lead for most medals with 15. 

The day started off with a tumultuous women's Super G as 18 competitors failed to finish in the race that was won by Austria's Anna Fenninger. 

Poland was a surprise dual gold winner with Kamil Stoch and Zbigniew Brodka earning first-place positions in their respective events. 

Sweden and China also took home golds on a day that featured seven medal events.
