Zero, very likely..but there a slim chance for Jessica Triebeľová in Boxing, the girl is 3 years undefeated in Europe, but you know..Boxing, so it depend on which nation you´ll be drawn, if she´ll be lucky and avoid one of the protected nations a semifinals bronze is possible :d

I honestly do not know. Most of Canada's sporting organizations do not care about the event and usually send b teams (sometimes A). I want to estimate anywhere from 6-10

-1 or 2 in swimming (girls 400/800 free)

-1 in athletics (boy pole vault)

-1 in judo (boys -81kg)

I have absolutely no idea, I don't follow the international youth competitions of every sport closely, which already makes it impossible to really have a somewhat realistic idea :p

8-10 being very optimistic, but I believe that in the end we'll get 4-6. Not sure about our judo and swimming team, but our gymnasts are not nearly as strong as they were in 2010 (Arthur Nory, who didn't get a medal at the YOG but earned a bronze medal at the 2016 Olympics) or 2014 (Flávia Saraiva, 1 gold medal and 2 silver medals).

If I have to predict for India I don't think it's very difficult :

Athletics : Boys Hammer  1silver

Archery : 0-1

Badminton : After having the multiple world and Olympic champion Lin Dan troubled twice in two weeks Lakshya Sen can win gold,  junior world no 4 Vaishnvai can win a medal if not gold. 

Judo :.W 44kg 1b

Shooting :2-4 medals. Issf senior and junior world cup champion sr world no. 5 and a senior  world record holder  Manu Bhaker and silver medallist in the rifle events  Mehuli Ghosh should win gold and this gold could be the 1st gold of the games. 

Boxing : 1g for Nitu, world youth champion 51kg girls

Field hockey : 1s men,  1b women 

Wrestling : 1g through world cadet champion65 kg  and 1 silver. 

Weightlifting : 1g or 1s M 56 kg

 

Total : 5g 3s 2b 10 medals

It's a bit surprising that many countries like :USA:GBR:GER:BLR:AUS:CHN:IRI:JPN:RUS:UKR:FRA or even :CAN don't have a proper idea of their youth athletes. May be as things get more clear within a month with all qualifiers  we could expect Joshmaartini007 to predict a medal tally for the games:thumbup::clap::champion::yes
