Ivana Španović from Croatia :facepalm: How could they pick the winners when they don't even know the country..

In general they have very interesting picks, i think they are overstimating american athletes in most disciplines. In womens long jump they didnt predict a medal for the top 2 in world ranking, which is very interesting ... :mumble:

 

Nataliia Lupu (2nd at 2012 world indoor championships) wont be allowed to compete, she apparently took Meldonium for a couple of years as a medicine.

At the 2014 world indoor championships she tested positive for Methylhexaneamine and therefore got a 9 months ban.

It's an American site...they also always think Galen Rupp will win most races and Jenny Simpson is the clear favorite in every 1500m she runs :d

I know, but some predictions are still pretty "brave" ...

Gold for Berian and Centrowitz?

Bronze for Kendricks? I would favor Braz ...

Two medals in mens triple jump?

Gold in womens long jump?

 

BUT: Only bronze in womens high jump?

Some american fans are really going crazy over Cunningham. Some of them predict her to jump world record (2.09) as a junior (until the end of 2017), although she just set a PB of 1.99 ...

Well to be fair, jumping 1.95 and 1.99 when you're only barely 18 is seriously impressive.
