Sochi Olympics Medals Ceremony Short Track Speedskating Men AP

Back on Feb. 8, slopestyle snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg of the U.S. won the first gold of the Sochi Olympics.

This morning, the Canadian men’s hockey team won the last gold of the Sochi Olympics with a 3-0 win over Sweden.

In between Kotsenburg and Team Canada’s respective coronations, a record-tying 26 nations claimed at least one of the 98 medals that were up for grabs in these Games.

But in the end, Russia reigned. They came away with the most medals, 33, five more than its closest competition, the U.S.

As noted by Olympic historian Bill Mallon, it’s only the fifth time a nation has won over 30 medals in a single Winter Olympics and it also marks an 18-medal improvement over the 15 medals they got four years ago in Vancouver (the second-biggest jump ever between two Winter Olympics).

And the Russians also won the most gold medals with 13 – five of which came from two competitors that were born in other countries (American-born snowboarder Vic Wild, Korean-born short track skater Victor Ahn).

It marks the first time a host nation has won on overall and gold medal counts at a Winter Olympics since Norway did it at Oslo in 1952. In those Games, the Norwegians won 16 medals, seven of them being gold.

And as noted last night, Ahn and Dutch speedskater Ireen Wust were the most decorated male and female Olympians in Sochi, respectively. Ahn won four medals altogether, while Wust captured five (two of them gold).

With that, here’s the final overall count from the XXII Olympic Winter Games…

    Uhhhhh I wouldn’t say earning 9 medals fewer with the most Olympians we’ve ever sent as “improvement”

    Well, when you consider that six of the Russian medals(five gold) were won by an American(Wild) and a Korean(Aun), the US should have had 30 medals and Russia 27.

    Well, Wild went to Russia because the US wasn’t supporting his sport enough so there is nothing wrong with that. This was our best medal count at an olympics on a non-american continent.

    Everyone realizes that these medal count standings are bogus, right? Olympic medal standings are ranked by number of GOLD medals, not total medals. USA was 4th in the standings, not 2nd!!!! Russia, Norway, and Canada finished ahead of the USA in medal standings

      As far as I know, silver and bronze are still medals, so why wouldn’t they count? Yes, in gold medals, you are correct. But the article said medal count, not gold medal count.

    “But in the end, Russia reigned. They came away with the most medals, 33, five more than its closest competition, the U.S”

    The Olympics don’t interest me….but between the skating scam, the cheating in skeleton, and the changing of the temperature on the luge track the Russian medal count is a joke…..

    I guess it’s all part of the Olympic experience….
