The truth is, host country, Russia, won most of the medals with a total of 33 total podium finishes.

That included 13 gold medals, 11 silver and nine bronze. The Russian nation was particularly proud of the fact that they won four out of the total eight medals that were available to be won on the day of the final competitions at the Winter Olympics.

One of those medals was for the four-man bobsled events and a sweep in the last cross-country event.

"Great entertainment," says San Francisco resident, Josephine O'Donnell.

So how did the United States do? They were actually second overall with 28 medals in total.

On the last day, a bronze was won for Steve Holcom, the 2010 Olympic Champion in Vancouver. They won the four-man final for the bobsled.

The third place went to Norway who earned 26 medals.

Canada came fourth with 25 medals to their name. They managed to defend their title in ice hockey.

The Netherlands did well too. They won 24 medals, with 23 of them being for winning the long track speed skating competitions.
