With the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi complete and in the record books, information posted to the Games' official website on Feb. 23 reveals that host nation Russia won the overall medal count race with 33 total podium finishes, including 13 gold, 11 silver, and nine bronze medal placements. The Russians put an exclamation point on their victory by winning four of the eight medals up for grabs on the final day of competition, including gold in four-man bobsled and a sweep in the final cross country event.

After a lackluster final two days of competition, the United States finished second overall with 28 medals, including a last-day bronze for 2010 Vancouver Olympic champion Steve Holcomb and his crew in the four-man bobsled final. Third place went to Norway, who finished with 26, while Canada, who successfully defended their Vancouver title in ice hockey on Feb. 23 by defeating Sweden 3-0, placed fourth with 25 total medals.

The Netherlands rounded out the top five with 24 Olympic medals that included a mind-boggling 23 in long track speed skating events.
