Here's a template you can use, or you can just guess the overall amount of medals!
For reference, here are the stats for the previous 3 Olympic Games:

My understanding is we have outperformed expectations in previous years.
I am anticipating that with covid the superpower nations teams with huge depth i.e. USA, Russia & China will pick up more then usual over the high over-performing nations with less overall athletes.
Just a purely speculative guess. I also think their is a chance we have covid outbreaks in certain teams or sports that make knowingly the outcome very hard.
Think we'll miss out on a couple of golds and they'll be replaced with silvers and bronzes instead.
The mighty Mr Kim will ensure the victory of the entire team
Some awesome predictions peeps

I can predict that GB will win 4 medals in the boxing:
- Ben Whittaker should bag a bronze, he won a silver at the World Championships in 2019, I think he loses in the semis to the Kazakh who is ranked 1st.
- Pat McCormack will win gold, he's ranked number 1, anything less than a bronze will be a complete shock.
- Lauren Price is favourite for gold and Caroline Dubois is inexperienced but I think she'll bag a bronze.
Only other fighter I can see winning a medal is Frazer Clarke, it depends if he beats the Frenchman in the Quarters then he gets the bronze but will probably lose to Jalolov the Uzbek.
Watched the semis on 99 and the commentators freaked out when he made it!
Cheung Ka Long (HK) 15-11 (some Italian fencer)
HK got its second gold!
The commentators on 99 freaked out! Everyone in HK can't believe it!
