Beijing Olympics 2022: the updated medal table

At the Beijing 2022 Olympics, Norwegian Therese Johaug won the second gold medal of her event, in cross-country skiing, women's 10 km, ahead of the two Finnish athletes Kerttu Niskanen and Krista Parmakoski. In the men's Snowboard cross, Austrian Alessandro Haemmerle wins, according to Canadian Eliot Grondin, third Italian Omar Visentin.

In the men's Alpine Combined, first Johannes Strolz from Austria, second Aleksander Aamodt Kilde from Norway, third James Crawford from Canada. Meanwhile, 15-year-old Russian figure skating star Kamila Valieva reportedly tested positive for a banned heart drug before the Games, Russian media reported.
The drug detected is trimetazidine, a metabolic agent prescribed for the treatment of angina and dizziness, according to the newspaper Kommersant.

It is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency because it can increase blood flow efficiency and aid endurance. If confirmed, it could cost Russia team gold and jeopardize its participation in the individual event. The positive sample was obtained before Valieva won the European championship in January, reported the RBC newspaper.
