The Tokyo Olympics is only a week away :woo: so it's the perfect time to make our predictions: How many medals do you think Team GB (and other countries) will receive this year? :2012:

Here's a template you can use, or you can just guess the overall amount of medals!

Country:
Gold:
Silver:
Bronze:
Total:

For reference, here are the stats for the previous 3 Olympic Games:

Gold 21
Silver 12
Bronze 14
Total 47

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.

Over 40 medals in total. The British team will be one of the best one at the olympic games as usual.

Think we'll miss out on a couple of golds and they'll be replaced with silvers and bronzes instead.

There are 12 Pals chez Persephone and Pals, so I (Persephone the Therapy Penguin) believe Team GB will get at least 12 Gold Medals, if not more :king1:

There are huge expectations on the British team. No one here really believes that Great Britain finishes the Olympic games with under 40 medals.

No way of predicting this so I won't bother, but I think GB will finish 3rd in the medal table, behind China this time unlike in Rio, due to the fact we have lost a lot of experienced athletes like Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Nicola Adams etc.

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.

As it is an important match for HK, free to air channels 77, 81, 82, 84, 85, 96 and 99 will all broadcast the men's foil final!
Watched the semis on 99 and the commentators freaked out when he made it!
