A non-slip here or a lucky break there and maybe . . . just maybe, the red Maple Leaf is sitting on top of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games medal table.

While Canada may not have topped the podium, the Olympic team definitely made the country proud by finishing third at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games that concluded Sunday in Russia.

Heading into the final days of competition much of the chatter surrounding the medal count was focused on how Canada was likely to finish well short of the 2010 total.

But gold medals in men’s — a 3-0 victory over Team Sweden in the final Sunday morning — and women’s hockey and curling helped rocket Canada into the top three in the standings behind the Russian Federation and Norway.

Canada finished in Sochi with just one less medal than in Vancouver.
