0 or 1 medal.

 

Bulgaria could win a medal in one of the following:

parallel giant slalom - Radoslav Yankov

snowboardcross - Alexandra Zhekova

biathlon - Krasimir Anev

 

None of them is favourite in their discipline but they all have their chances on a good day.

 

Good luck! I'm hoping that Bulgaria, Hungary, Belgium can finally win a new medal, chances are there, but in Sochi they all missed out narrowly. :(

 

Ah, winter sports and their never changing medal tables. :p

yep, the classical jinx thread  :d

 

Any medal would be absolutely amazing for us.

this time maybe we are traveling to the Winter Olympics with some bigger optimism and let say higher chances to grab some medal(s) than in the previous editions. But, it´s always the same, with some luck we should repeat Vancouver 2010 which would be absolutely fantastic, but we may also perfectly return home with a bag of fourth places and without a single medal, which would be really painful...

 

Anyway. I´m not a  superstitious person, but my "medal" wish for this games will remain secret :d

 

My only personal wish I´ll publicly present, is that if our Hockey team will reach the Quarterfinals I´ll be satisfied and really happy. :d

Let's hope that won't happen again indeed. Luckily the chance of a repeat of that doesn't seem very big. 

I think I said something similar about GBR and cycling at Rio.

"They'll be lucky to win 4 medals" I said :facepalm:

So expect Netherlands to win 30 medals this time.

25 :p

20 would be great :thumbup:

 

I hope a progress and a new record after Sochi too (15 medals)

I will be a little more cautious and say 18 medals.

Alpine skiing: 0 medals likely, maybe 1 by luck.

Biathlon: 0 medals likely, maybe 1 by luck

Bobsleigh: 2 medals (one men's and one women's)

Cross-country skiing: 0 medals likely, maybe 1 by luck

Curling: 3 medals, anything less would be a real shock. 

Figure skating: Team medal, ice dance and perhaps Osmond in the women's event. 3 medals.

Freestyle skiing: 2 moguls medals, one in women's ski cross, one in slopestyle, one in halfpipe. 5 total. 

Hockey: 2 medals (hard to gauge though)

Luge: 2 medals (one women's and one relay)

Nordic Combined: Not competing in the sport, so 0. :d

Skeleton: 0 medals likely, maybe 1 by luck

Ski jumping: 0 medals

Short track: 2 relay medals, Hamelin with an individual medal, the women with one individual medal. 4 medals.

Snowboarding: 2 medals in men's slopestyle and 2 medals in big air. 4 total. 

Speed skating: I think Bloeman will win 2 medals, a women's medal (likely Blondin) and maybe another one from the men. So 3-4.

 

Total: 32-37

Well, just like GBR's domination in track cycling, Dutch domination in speed skating is not a good thing for anyone who's actually a fan of the sport instead of purely cheering for the flag behind someone's name. So I hope a repeat of Sochi won't happen and realistically, a repeat of that domination is simply not likely :p
