    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?

      You can sort by each medal. USA leads the overall count. If Norway has more total medals, then they lead.

      • Fritz vonMaybach

        when people compete, they compete to win not to get bronze. got to the official olympics website, and you will see Norway on top. Why? because the country winning the most events wins. total overall medals is just total over all.
        no one can win the games with more bronze than any one. what you are saying is that placing third in the most events is better than winning the most events.

        and if you look at your above standings, although russia has the same total of medals as the US, Russia is above, why because Russia has more gold.
        because gold trumps all others.
        you contradict yourself
        Norway has the most gold, winning the most events making them them the leaders by IOC standards and that is the end of it.

      Only the U.S. media could be so arrogant and uninformed as to place the U.S. in medal rankings according to total medals. The IOC and ALL other countries show the rankings by GOLD medals won. It’s like U.S. education, knowledge ends at the U.S. border. The media nurtures the whole concept. If they can’t win, they tell the story in a different format so it looks like they won. Then they are in disbelief to find that by all standards, U.S. children are behind the world in scholastic achievement.

    Feel like we should resort to the 3 pts for gold – 2 pts for silver – 1 pt for brozen

    • Fritz vonMaybach

      there is no need for that, everybody just have to respect IOC regulations since it is the Olympics governing body.

  • Pedro Salomao

    I love how american writers always change the medal count method in order to benefit the USA. Since the first Olympics in Athens in 1896, the medal ranking is always done based on the number of gold medals, then silver and then bronze, there is no such count as overall medals at all. There has never been and there will never be. The United States are currently second on the medal board and unless they win at least 2 more gold medals, they won’t pass Norway. Aren’t journalists supposed to be impartial?

      exactly, if you check sites like bbc sport or any canadian or EU news broadcaster, they place Norway on top. I wonder why is it that the US media is doing this. It makes me wonder, WHAT ELSE DO THEY CHANGE IN THE NEWS FROM THE REAL STORY.

  • Andrew

    You know its funny that you will use # of medals to decide who’s first now.. but usually you will use the number of gold medals. How about a fair system that assigns points to the position (ie 3 pts for Gold, 2 for Silver, 1 for Bronze)?
