Winter Olympic Games Beijing 2022 Team Sizes


 Share

Recommended Posts

About a year ago I made a prediction on the team sizes, here's the link. Let's see how I did.

 

First the following nations qualified, but I didn't predict.

:ERI:GHA:IND:KSA

 

Nations which I thought would qualify, but did not.

:CAY:KEN:PRK:RSA

 

Overall not too bad, the ones that I missed were not active a year ago and only qualified one athlete. Kenya technically qualified, but the athlete was not selected and I made my prediction before finding out North Korea will isolate itself until COVID passes. Cayman Islands was a bad pick since I thought an already retired athlete would try to qualify.

 

The following nations I underestimated (predicted a smaller team) by at least five athletes.

 

:DEN - 59 athletes

:AUS - 10 athletes

:POL - 6 athletes

:CAN - 5 athletes

:JAM - 5 athletes

 

Sorry Denmark, but in my defense they were the first reserves in curling and one win away from qualifying in ice hockey. Unfortunately for me, the nation qualified in those four team events, account for 58 athletes. I kind of knew I was underestimating Australia given its restrictive travel regulations so I'm not surprised that I was off by a lot. I also missed the mark on Jamaica considering how small their team is. I originally only had them qualifying in women's monobob, but they were able to barely sneak in the two men's events.

 

The following nations I overestimated (predicted a larger team) by at least five athletes.

 

:GER - 33 athletes

:NOR - 32 athletes

:GBR - 12 athletes

:FRA - 11 athletes

:ITA - 11 athletes

:JPN - 10 athletes

:SUI - 10 athletes

:BLR - 9 athletes

:KOR - 6 athletes

 

Originally I had Germany and Norway qualifying ice hockey teams which explains why they are at the top of the list, but even if we ignore that both nations would remain on the list with 10 and 7 athletes respectively. One weakness from my prediction is I didn't take into account whether a nation will decline quotas which is why you see a lot of the big European nation here.

Who from the Caymans did you predict to qualify?

+ Mislav Rosandič (who is on the Alternate Ice Hockey Team, preparing and ready to replace in case of covid or injury) born in Zagreb :CRO (actually half Croatian)

I see @dcro surprised here. You never heard about him before ? He is actually a pretty decent defencer, was our 2nd line defencemen last year in Riga WCh

Never heard of him. And seems like our NOC hasn't heard of him either, as he would have been the best flag bearer available for Beijing. :whistle:

 

We will never build a hockey team, so good on him to pursue career elsewhere.

Interesting, I thougth he was more famous in Croatia.

 

He is good defender, actually I expected him to be in the final roster, but he ended to be the first alternate, but seeing how everything works with covid lately maybe he will make the team at the end.

 

Here is his probably the most briliant moment of his career, you can click on it, I moved the video to his goal moment
