The winning country in the Olympics is it determined by most gold or is it by most total medals?

There is no "winning country" in the Olympics. The games celebrate human achievement not national achievement. That being said, the US has won the most medals overall in all of the Olympics, Canada may well have won the most Gold Medals in a Winter Olympics and the US may well have won the most medals of any type in any of the Winter Olympics. I don't know which country has won the most Golds and most medals overall in the Summer Olympics.
