Sochi 2014 Olympic results: Sunday events in double bobsled, men's hockey, more

SOCHI, Russia - Spoiler alert! See who won medals in Sunday's Olympic competitions in Sochi.

-- U.S. service member Chris Fogt gets first Olympic gold in bobsled

A couple of years ago, Chris Fogt was serving his country in war. On Sunday, he was representing his country on the medal podium at the Olympic Games.

Fogt won his first Olympic medal on Sunday, helping the USA-1 sled driven by Steven Holcomb win the bronze in four-man bobsledding on the final day of the Sochi Games. Holcomb was entering the day with two Olympic medals in his collection already, and sledmates Curt Tomasevicz and Steve Langton had one apiece.

And while this ride was for the United States, the three other guys in the sled decided it was very much for Fogt as well.

"Chris and I have been teammates since 2007," Langton said. "This was for him. He deserves it. He works his butt off and he's one of the most talented guys on the hill. So to do that for him, I couldn't be more thrilled."

-- Zubkov wins double bobsled gold for Russia

Alexander Zubkov has driven Russia to victory in four-man bobsled, making him the sixth pilot to sweep the men's bobsled races at an Olympics.

Oskars Melbardis of Latvia drove to the silver medal on Sunday, and 2010 champion Steven Holcomb of Park City, Utah, piloted USA-1 to bronze.

The U.S. won seven sliding medals at the Sochi Games, more than any other nation.

The 39-year-old Zubkov predicted the third run of the competition would decide everything and he was right. He padded his lead considerably in that heat, and no one could keep pace.

Not long afterward, he enjoyed what was a golden final joyride down the track, clinching the title by 0.09 seconds.

-- Canada beats Sweden for gold in men's hockey

Jonathan Toews scored in the first period, captain Sidney Crosby scored his first goal of the tournament and Canada defended its Olympic men's hockey title Sunday with a 3-0 victory over Sweden in the gold-medal game.

Chris Kunitz also scored and Carey Price made 24 saves for the Canadians, who confirmed their worldwide dominance in their national game by winning gold for the third time in the last four Olympics.

-- Russia sweeps men's 50 km mass start free

Alexander Legkov led a Russian sweep of the men's 50-kilometer cross-country race, sprinting across the finish line 0.7 seconds ahead of his two countrymen.

-- Overall medal count

Russia ends the games with 33 medals, including 13 gold, 11 silver and nine bronze.

The U.S. comes in second in the medal count with 28, taking nine gold medals, seven silver and a dozen bronze.
