The Winter Olympics start tomorrow in a country (Russia) that has yet to win a medal at a World Flying Disc Federation Championships or The World Games Ultimate ("Flying Disc") competition. Since 1983, there have been only eighteen countries that won a medal at international Ultimate events:
Teams from North America have won the majority of medals; 134 medals (~41%) by the U.S. and 53 (16%) by Canada.

Top-3 medal-winning countries (out of 18):
1. United States, 134
2. Canada, 53
3. Japan, 31

Countries with most gold medals (out of 9):
1. United States, 73
2. Canada, 16
3. Sweden, 10
