Btw, in all likelihood, the Dutch are going to win the next two golds.

Eurosport player.

 

Though that's actually OBS commentator so he can probably be found on some other streams too.

Thanks! 

I quite enjoy videos from London,commentators are from BBC and they are sometimes interesting as a competition itself. Those OBS are usualy boring.

I doubt that they will win women's 500 m, women's team pursuit should also be difficult and let's see about mass start.

We will see , but some people said the same about women's 1000 and 1500 and Netherlands won at the end , I find it kind of interesting if they managed to do this , maybe it'll be the 1st time in history that a country totally dominates an Olympic sport provides more than 5 gold medals , maybe we will see Netherlands tops the medals table at the end

They perhaps weren't favorites in 1000m/1500m, but 500m is simply impossible.

Winning 13 gold medals is still a miracle in a sport supposed to be the athletics of WOG

I wouldn't even count Ter Mors out completely in this insane shape (and if Kodaira and to a lesser extent Lee have a bad day of course). But yeah, it's highly unlikely. In the team pursuit I'd say the Netherlands might not be the favourite, but they're certainly a lot closer to Japan than one would have expected a week ago.

Well, there are also mass starts, they are so unpredictable, probably 15 athletes can win both. Men's 500m is similarly unpredictable.

 

Also Japan is probably the favorite in women's team pursuit, as they broke WR by about 5 seconds this season. However Dutch were more dominant in women's events here so I guess another Dutch gold should be more likely scenario...

Also Sablikova might be the favorite in the 5000m, but I doubt it. Visser was faster than gold medalist Achtereekte in Kolomna, while Annouk was even faster than her. :p
