    The US is not in the lead. If you go to the official Sochi Olympics page, you will see that Norway is in the lead. Why?

    Because the Country with the Most Golds win the Olympics in any case. By saying that the country with the most bronze is winning is incorrect. It is like saying winning most of the events doesn’t matter. You are, by saying that the USA is leading, is like saying that if one country has 30 medals with 20 of those medals being bronze will beat a country with 28 medals, with 24 of those medals being gold.

    The country with the highest medal count does not win the Olympics, the winner is ALWAYS the country with the MOST GOLD that wins.

    The USA does have 2 more medals than Norway but Norway has the most gold. And it seems as if Norway’s total medal count will surpass the USA. So if Norway has the most gold and the most medals, what will you say then?
