Sports Illustrated Olympic Games Predictions


Recommended Posts

From what I read two gold medals, Pendrel and Witten. A few medals in Rowing, too. But generally it looks like if they are right we are heading for our worse Olympics since... Montreal (gold-medal wise).

Full list:

Bronze, Mark Oldershaw, C1 1000m

Silver, Adam van Koeverden, K1 1000m

Bronze, Zach Bell, Omnium

Gold, Tara Witten, Omnium,

Gold, Catharine Pendrel, mountain biking

Bronze, Canada, women's Team Pursuit

Bronze, Benefeito and Filion, women's 10m Synchro Platform

Bronze, Erik Lamaze, Show Jumping

Silver, Karen Cockburn, Trampoline

Silver, Calder and Frandsen, rowing men's pair

Silver, Canada, rowing men's eight

Silver, Canada, rowing women's eight

Bronze, Kathrine Sergerie, taekwondo -67kg

Silver, Dylan Armstrong, shot put

Silver, Carol Huynh, wrestling -48kg

Bronze, Tonya Verbeek, wrestling -55kg

So overall 2-7-7-16. Somewhere between Beijing and Athens in terms of total medals. Only winning two gold would be quite a disappointment, though.

Predictions are ridiculous.

A little light. I cannot imagine Ryan Cochrane not medaling and between Martha McCabe, Sinead Russel and Tera van Belien, one of them should win a medal.

Also find it strange that 10m synchro is our medal, I would put Abel in the 3m and Abel and Heymans in the 3m synchro as much more likely.

And I cannot see Canada doing worse then Beijing, especially after all the money and time spent on the programs since.

What about Dylan Armstrong in Shot Put ?

And Synchro Swimming where we can grab 2 Bronze ?

Ryan Cochrane is a serious containder for a Gold, And why not a Bronze or a Silver for Brent Hayden ?

On 12 events for Canoe/Kayak, hard to believe that we will finish with only one Silver and one Bronze. Ok Adam VK choke in Beijing, Is able to repeat Athens. And Oldershaw is also a Gold medal pretender

Women diving ? at least 2 Bronze in Synchro and maybe another Bronze individual.

OK I stop here, but I can continue with others good exemples proving that Sports Illustrated predictions are often not serious.

Journal La Presse, the most important newpaper in Montreal predict today for Canada 33 medals (5 golds)

They didn't wrote the breakdown.

They said they used 26 specialists for the 26 sports and they based their predictions according to the results of the last year internationnal events,

I don't believe we will reach that number

33 medals... right. Also, what kind of silver and bronze heavy result would that be?

Only works on iPad. Doesn't work on my iPhone.

Doesnt work on my Ipad either. The New Zealand media have picked up that New Zealand are predicted to win 5 gold, 5 silver and 6 bronze in the Sports Illustrated predictions.
