Canada maintains record for most gold medals at a Winter Olympics

According to the Sochi 2014 website, Canada continues to have the record for most gold medals won at an Olympic Winter Games after the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi came to a close on Sunday.

Russia had the most gold medals at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games with 13. But it was one less Olympic gold medal than Canada won at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver where the Canadians set the record with 14 gold medals.

Short track speed skater Victor Ahn led the Russians in Sochi with three Olympic Winter gold medals. He won a gold medal in the men's 500m and men's 1000m events and was part of the Russian men's 5000m relay team event that won a gold medal.

The United States continues to have the record for most medals won at the Winter Olympic Games. Their record of 37 medals at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver will continue another four years. Russia had a country high 33 medals at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

The fact that the Olympic records set by Canada and the United States four years ago at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver was not broken at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi is a little surprising because of the 12 new events on the Olympic program.
