BUT...
Norway has been moved to Group A rather than being in Group B. AND the team from Norway has been split into two teams by gender.
We hope that you can adjust your picks before the games start in earnest.

Looks like he/she picked Switzerland and Sweden in Group B.

@Ticomaya,
Could be, Tico. I was confused by the [s] and more [ ]. As a sometime game runner, I appreciate wheel's task regarding getting this going on short notice.

@Jahiegel,
It looks like we're all set -- we just need @Jahiegel to select a different Group B selection (besides Norway)...

I'm a bit tardy, so this'll be but an unofficial entry.

Group A (choose 2):
Canada
United States women

Group B (choose 2):
Austria
Norway

Group C (choose 2):
France
Netherlands

Group D (choose 4):
Great Britain
Japan
Poland
Slovenia


Can someone let Jahiegel know?

Thanks, and good luck to all!

@tgordon92 (and others who may be interested): After much hunting, I finally found separate medal tables for Men, Women and Mixed:

Men: http://olympics.cbc.ca/medals/gender=m/index.html
Women: http://olympics.cbc.ca/medals/gender=w/index.html
Mixed: http://olympics.cbc.ca/medals/gender=x/index.html

Thank you CBC!

At the end of Day 1, no medals yet for Germany or Russia, but it's early. Also note that Jahiegel's team still needs another Group B team (there are several that haven't gotten medals yet):

(NOTE: I used a mostly-automated spreadsheet, but I'd appreciate a double-check on my calculations)

Oh, and Jamaica..

At the end of Day 2, Russia and Germany Men finally get on the board. Germany Women are still searching for their first medal. Also note that Jahiegel's team still needs another Group B team (there are several that haven't gotten medals yet).

Additionally, today was the first Mixed event (Team Figure Skating), and I realized I had a mistake when adding those scores in. No biggie, it's fixed now.

Here are the scores; sdelong takes the lead (every nation her team has scored points already):
