Medal Tally Olympics 2014: Updated Results for Each Event from Day 7

The Winter Olympics continued to roll on this Friday, with several athletes acquiring a new loved one in a precious medal on Valentine's Day.

Six medal events occurred on Day 7, capping off an intense week of Olympic action in Sochi. Norway and the United States enter the weekend holding a slight lead in the overall medal count, but Germany leads the way with seven first-place finishes.

None of the top nations experienced particularly fruitful days. Instead, Switzerland got in the game by capturing two gold medals and one silver.

Dario Cologna's victory in the cross-country skiing 15-kilometer was not much of a stunner. The three-time medalist won the 15-kilometer freestyle in 2010. Afterwards, the 27-year-old embodied the Olympic spirit by waiting 28 minutes to welcome last-place finisher Roberto Carcelen. From Business Insider's Cork Gaines:

Carcelen (bib no. 92), who finished 87th, crossed the finish line and was first greeted by Dachhiri Sherpa of Nepal (bib no. 91), who finished 86th in the event. And then, to the likely surprise of everybody, Cologna appeared, still carrying his skis, to greet both competitors with a handshake. What a great moment and what the Olympics should be all about.

In a surprise outcome, Sandro Viletta became the first Swiss competitor to win an alpine skiing event. The 28-year-old beat out many stars expected to thrive, including France's Alexis Pinturault and the United States' Bode Miller and Ted Ligety.

Failing to medal in the event, Miller was the U.S.' highest finisher at sixth place.

Belarus' Darya Domracheva won her second medal of the week, this time taking gold in the biathlon's 15-kilometer individual. She finished 1 minute and 15.7 seconds ahead of silver-medal winner Selina Gasparin.

After setting a world record in the figure skating short program, Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu finished the job by earning the highest score in the free skate. The 19-year-old won his first Olympic gold medal over Canada's Patrick Chan. 

The U.S. didn't come away completely empty-handed on Friday. Noelle Pikus-Pace grabbed silver in the women's skeleton. It was a tough road to Sochi for Pikus-Pace, who had a miscarriage after the 2010 Olympics and combated multiple injuries throughout her career.

NBC producer R.J. Rico captured her celebrating her big day with her family, who have traveled with her throughout the Games.
