To give readers a gauge of how the Olympic medal standings may look in February, we present the World Cup standings every Monday leading into the Sochi.

The medals are tabulated from World Cup and Grand Prix events.

While the U.S. remains in first place with a sizeable lead over South Korea, this past weekend belonged to the Germans, who cleaned up with 11 medals, including a sweep in women’s luge.

The Canadians didn’t reach the top of the podium, but did earn three medals and rank third overall. Ice dancers Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje claimed silver in Russia. They were followed by Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch’s bronze-medal effort in pairs.

Lugers Alex Gough, Sam Edney, Justin Snith and Tristan Walker finished second in team relay event in Austria.

Here is how the top 10 nations stack up:
