    won't compete in next week's World Championships in  Hamar as they can't fly to Norway due to travel restrictions. This will mainly have a significant impact on the sprint championships where Russians on both the male and female side were among the title favorites.

    Sir Jason Kenny has retired. He won seven Olympic gold medals and two silvers, making him the best British Olympic athlete ever. A sad day, but as I first read the headline as "Jason Kenny dies" instead of retires

    I think their first spot is safe. I don't see any chance for the US, but maybe Russia can do it. Russia has a lot of potential to improve on their gold medal count in speed skating, biathlon and women's cross-country skiing. The norwegian dominance in women's cross-country skiing might end, but i think they have a very bright future in speed skating (especially on the men's side), nordic combined, alpine skiing (especially on the men's side) and of course biathlon. No other nation than Germany has won more than 11 golds at the last 3 olympics and i think Germany doesn't have the potential to win many more golds, while Norway will probably win 12+ golds even if they completely flop. I think climate change will lead to their dominance in sports like biathlon, cross-country skiing or alpine skiing becoming even bigger. The exciting part is that noone can really make any solid predictions about what will happen in 4 years. 4 years ago absolutely noone would have predicted Schouten and Roeiseland to become this dominant.

    had 36 top 8 placements with only 41 athletes in Beijing, probably in part due to the impossible qualification standards for Dutch athletes in certain sports 
     
    7th WOG in a row where  finished top 10 in the medal ranking, but only the first time ever where we won medals in 3 different sports during the same winter olympic games

    Hello, everyone!
     
    First of all, congrats to all our Finnish users for a hockey win! I would like to be in Helsinki now!!! 
     
    And secondly,
     
    looks like we have our polls-winner!!!
     
    Provisional rankings show that @Wumo won the whole thing.
     
    And that was pretty close - looks like the decisive move was predicting that Victoria Carl will finish 12th in 30k cross-country race. Man, how the fuck did you know that???
     
    Congratulations @Wumo There is a bottle of best Polish vodka prepared for you. Well-frozen. You'll find it in the post. Enjoy!
     
    Congrats for @mrv86 and @phelps for the other medals. That was so close!!! Don't give up, maybe next season...
     
    But I would like to say it loudly that @Wumo is such a deserved winner here. I have written this earlier in these polls series, but I will repeat it now - I would like to THANK YOU for all the efforts in your prediction contests. I can see now how much time and work it takes, so big respect for you from me and all of us, I guess!!!
     
    I think there may be some minor mistakes in the peleton scores but a winner looks to be certain. If you find any mistakes, please let me know.
     
    You will find the provisional rankings table attached to this post in a doc file.
     
    I have promised a Super-Sunday for my family today, after all these 16 days in Beijing, so the final rankings with all these fancy flags&tags will be published rather later than sooner, forgive me that.
    It will be here altogether with all the behind-the-scenes reports, special honorary awards and doping violations summary.
     
    Thank you all for your participations, that was FUN!!!
     
    Have a good Sunday, everyone...
     
    and now let's only hope there won't be a war next week or later on... i am just too afraid to watch non-sporting news these days... how the fuck could we all get that close to this shit?
    so everyone, stay safe, please...
     
    Bye!
