Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But I have been seeing on the telly here in the US a lump sum medal tally, with a bronze and a gold having equal weight.

Does that make the US come out better than Gold > Silver > Bronze?

It is generally the case that the medal table is sorted by metal.
