Norway or USA, USA gold chances are more "sure" than Norwegian so i`d bet 55-45 for US

Really hard to understand why Germany got so few votes, despite having won 34 medals in olympic events at the latest world championships, including 18 of them in gold, despite ...

a) Lisa Zimmermann not able to compete

b) Felix Loch missing out on a medal

c) No medal in men's ski jumping team

Naturally the number of golds will go down, but its hard to see Germany ending up with less than 12 golds (3-4 x luge, 2 x bob, 1 x skeleton, 2-3 x nordic combined, 2-3 x biathlon) which will be very hard to match for any other nation except the US.

Germany is tied for second atm... which is reasonable as any one of the three (Norway, Germany or the USA) have a good shot at winning top spot.

No. Certainly no :d

 

The fun thing was that actually this happened during the Day 1 of the Games, which was one of the most memorable and successful day of our sport, since only few hours before this match Nastya won our first historic Gold at WOG in Biathlon Sprint.

Netherlands can be 3rd with only 2 sports for gold chances (speed skating and short track)..

I think the battle will be between Germany and USA. Norway must go well in both biathlon and CC skiing to top the medal table. Probably they will fight with Canada and Netherlands for 3rd place

Lol @ Belgium winning two medals.

 

They had much better prospects going into Sochi and yet they failed.

Gracenote is very bad in their predictions. So many errors and unrealistic results. I never trusted them tbh.
