I noticed that too! At first I thought they were going alphabetically back when Canada was tied with Norway for medals. But now it's pretty obvious they're just keeping Canada as #3 regardless of the medal count. Ridiculous. Inferiority complex much? lol
For as long as I know, going back to about Albertville, it Metal Standing goes by golds than tie breaker is silver and than bronze
I have only followed Canadian media, but looking at the official Olympic site http://www.sochi2014.com/en
Seems like the rest of the world does the same........ what does this remind me of..... ohhh the metric system. All kidding aside I have never seen why they would count like that.

"When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand
