The country have been the dominant force at the event in the Turkish resort and ended with a total of 39 medals, 19 of which were gold.

They concluded the competition by sealing the boys' ice hockey crown with a 7-1 thrashing of Belarus, while Slovakia edged France 3-2 to take bronze.

Both the boys' and girls' curling gold medals went the way of the Russians.

The boys' team overcame the tough challenge posed by the Dutch side with a 5-3 win but their girls team were in formidable form, dispatching hosts Turkey 7-2 in the final.

The home crowd were also left disappointed in the boys' bronze medal match as they lost 6-3 to Slovenia, which came after they suffered a heartbreaking 3-2 loss at the hands of Russia.

Bronze in the girls' event went to Poland as they overcame Norway 5-3.

Russia were the recipients of the last alpine skiing gold medal on offer as they triumphed in the parallel mixed team event thanks to a 3-1 victory against Slovenia in the final.

France took home the bronze medal by sweeping all four head-to-head contests in their clash with The Netherlands.

France secured bronze in the event, which featured two girls and two boys from each team.

Russia's success continued in the mixed relay events as they won the biathlon competition in 1hr 16min 39.3sec.

France were nearly a minute adrift of the winning pace in second, while Finland came through to take the bronze medal.

Elsewhere, Slovenia's Timi Zajc proved to be one of the stars of the final day's competition as his record-breaking jump of 117.5m helped Slovenia win the boys' team competition, which was initially due to be held yesterday.

Slovenia finished with a score of 936.2 points to seal the title, with France and Russia earning silver and bronze respectively.

The Slovenian team then reigned supreme in the mixed team competition, topping the podium with a total of 836.6.

The top three in the event was an exact replica to that of the boys' competition as France won silver and Russia clinched bronze.
