Canada Will Win Most Gold Medals At Sochi Olympics, Forecast Says

Posted: Updated:
Canada won more gold medals than any country at the 2010 Winter Olympics, yet that is not the goal for 2014 in Sochi, Russia. The target for Sochi remains as it was for Vancouver and Whistler, B.C., which to beat all other countries in total gold, silver and bronze medals won.

With the 2014 Sochi Olympics just a year away, one European company foresees good things for Canada.

Infostrada Sports Group in the Netherlands predicts Canada will top all countries with 17 gold medals in Sochi and place third overall with 32 podium finishes.

At the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Canada set a national record for a Winter Games by winning 26 medals, and Canada's 14 gold medals in Vancouver doubled the country's previous best total.

Three years ago, the United States led with 37 medals overall, outdistancing Germany (30) and Canada. But the Americans, according to Infostrada, are projected to fall to fourth place in Russia with 28 medals, including 10 gold.

Infostrada predicts Germany to win the most hardware with 39 medals, followed by Norway (38) and Canada.
