Honestly, I am sooooo glad that my two countries are good at different sports!
The Olympics start in two weeks! Yay! Does anyone want to repeat the pool from Beijing?If so, please declare your country(s) and estimated medal count in the comments.
I’m going for Canada, with eight golds, seven silvers, and five bronzes. And, um, Team GB I guess. Two silvers (curling) and a bronze (skeleton).
Rules from last time:
Bragging rights will be assigned according to the number of medals per head of your country’s population (otherwise you Americans will win waaaay too easily). 3 points for each gold medal, 2 for silver, 1 for bronze. Declare your nationality if possible, but if this will breach your anonymity then you can just trash talk the rest of us and then tell us your country’s final score at the end. We’ll obviously have more than one person supporting some of the countries, so please predict the number of gold, silver and bronze medals your team will win. (Again you don’t have to declare the country, just let us know how closely you guessed. I’m assuming that we’re all honest!). I’ll use these predictions to award a winner in the almost inevitable case of a tie-break.
