The United States Olympic Committee have defended their athletes' performances at the Sochi Winter Olympics, claiming that they've done "a great job".
"I couldn't be more proud of our Olympic team," Larry Probst, chairman of the USOC, told reporters.
Meanwhile Alan Ashley, managing director of sport performance, said: "We came here to compete, we came here with a great team and they've done a great job.
"Things don't always shake out exactly the way you think they're going to, but the surprises are sometimes way more surprising than the disappointments."
The Russian Federation secured top spot at the 2014 Winter Games with 33 medals, 13 of them being gold.
