Bulgaria has chances in Snowboarding and slim ones in Biathlon (Men's Individual). Denmark has chances in Curling and a slim one in Speed Skating (Mass Start, as well as Estonia). Very long stretches... Belgium, Lithuania and Brazil.

Although to be fair, Brazil's chances are in absolutely no way even remotely comparable to Belgium's chances :d

If Brazil wins a WOG medal before us it would be a huge embarassment... Colombia would be x3 more embarassing. Chile or Mexico I would be fine with.

 

But the truth is Winter olympics will likely be scrapped before any of them get the chance :p

Von Appen barely lost time against Dreßen in the downhill of the alpine combined tonight, so he might be a dark horse for the downhill on Thursday. The only mexican winter sport athlete i ever heard of is "Hubertus von Hohenlohe", but i doubt he will medal. Given Mexico's strong tradition in diving, i think they might do really well in aerials/moguls/big air/halfpipe if they would have any snow ...

For Colombia to win a medal at winter olympics, they would probably have to introduce some sort of weightlifting or BMX on ice. At least the second one doesn't seem impossible given IOC's more recent decisions.

Colombia's hypothetical chance in the future is obviously speed skating, since they are extremely good in Roller/Inline Speed Skeeting. They should focus all their resources in that.

They have a rather realistic chance there to at least significantly reduce the gap to the extended top of the world within the next 1-2 Olympic cycles, at the very least with 1 or 2 athletes. Pedro Causil's performances are hopeful, it'd be nice if more athletes of that kind of level follow. Very nice program there by coach Desly Hill :)

Indeed, did you ever even see someone like Clark get a podium because everyone basically fell? :p Falls like that simply don't happen.

 

Chile has a bigger chance in ski cross, but that's not happening ever.

Of course I know that's possible, but the chance is so tiny. Just the possibility of having extreme luck several times in a row means Brazil has a theoretical medal chance, whereas Belgium actually has a chance to get a medal on merit.

I almost can't count the number of medal chances Germany will have tomorrow. If everything goes well, Germany might more medals tomorrow than most nations have won during the whole games so far.

- 2 x biathlon

- figure skating

- luge team relay

- speed skating men's 10 000 m

- men's snowboard cross

- women's giant slalom

- men's downhill

 

 I hope for one medal in women's individual, a medal in figure skating, gold in luge, a medal in men's snowboard cross and a medal in women's giant slalom.

I don't see Beckert winning a medal, he seems to be completely out of shape. In men's biathlon everything is possible, but one medal should be guaranteed for Fourcade and hopefully Boe will finally show his true self and win the gold. Two medals is already much more than expected, so i won't ask for more. In men's downhill i don't think starting first will help Dreßen, but top 6 would be absolutely amazing for him. If 4 out of Svindal, Jansrud, Kriechmayer, Mayer, Bennett mess up he might have a tiny chance for a medal. Feuz would have to crash or miss a gate for Dreßen to have any chance to beat him. I don't know about the odds for Feuz, but for me this is the 2nd safest gold medal bet here, only behind Shiffrin in women's slalom.
