The Swedish Olympic team snatched a record number of medals in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. At 15 medals in total it has been the most successful Winter Olympics ever for Sweden. 

The Olympics ended on a bittersweet note for Sweden's hockey team though, which not only lost the final game but had one of their players tested positive for doping. Stefan Elofsson, head of news at Swedish Radio's sports department, says to Radio Sweden that the doping incident will overshadow much of Sweden's success in Sochi in years to come.
