    Djoković actualy stated that his conversation with Blanka Vlašić from Croatia helped him decide to go in Tokyo. She said to him that in 10 years nobody will remember anything but who won medals.

    You need to chill out. Why are you so angry all the time? 
     
    Adeleke’s best compares well with the winners of that competition. Maybe she’d win, maybe she wouldn’t have. I’d be confident she’d compete and beat those girls
     
    its fine if you disagree but you asking everybody who disagrees with you have they ever watched sport is getting tiresome

    Would agree with all of this and add that my big Olympic bet will be in rowing on the W4. For Gold. They will certainly medal along with  and . Currently 6/1 for Gold.

    But it’s not special treatment from the IOC really. If someone is a citizen of, say, Brazil or Netherlands or Malta or whoever they can represent them
     
    That’s how it works for Ireland and GB. The people of Northern Ireland are entitled to citizenship of both and that’s that really.
     
    It’s nothing new

    They weren't the "worse team". They deservedly beat Germany, just like the have the other 2 times they've played them this year in competitive games
     
    In fact The Netherlands have won every international trophy they've competed in for the last 10 years except for when England/GB have beaten them on penalties and 2 defeats to Argentina in Argentina.
     
    So yeah, it's safe to say they're far superior

    The game that the Netherlands won 2-0 without really trying? Yeah I watched that one...
     
    The Dutch are by some distance the best team around. They lost in a shootout in Rio, so shocks can happen but anything other than gold for them is a shock

    Apart from those you've mentioned, Kurt Walker in boxing, the Mens Double in rowing, the golfers and both sailing crews (We know Annalise Murphy turns up at the Olympics) are all potential medalist. Outside chances include Jack Wooley in Taekwondo, the Fletchers in Judo, rugby and hockey teams (0-0ing their way to another final), Natalya Coyle in MP and even the track cycling boys are all outside bets. It is genuinely the first time Ireland have had so many contendors
     
    Obviously the vast majority won't medal but I do think that with average luck (ie no illness, injuries, falls or dodgy decisions), The Lightweight doubles, Puspure, Harrington and McClenaghan should medal.
