I'm really surprised Russia and US don't have a claim.

Then why don't they just claim Mary Byrd Land (that south-west bit that nobody claims)?

Look at the description of Wikipedia: "Norway claims two territories. Peter I Island (small circle in the top of the unclaimed territory) and Queen Maud Land. Norway has not officially elaborated as to the northernly and southernly extent of Queen Maud Land. This is why the Norwegian claim is illustrated differently from the other claims. It is however generally assumed that the Norwegian claim follows the norms of the other Antarctic claims."
