Well time to open this thread....less then one month to go.
Can Russia be the number one in Beijing?
In Greece Russia was third in gold medals and second in total medals.
I believe Russia will be the number two in total medals,the question can they win more gold medals then Usa or China.
Well the big problem is the swimming.:rollani:,though russia has bring some female youngsters to shine in the last months hard to predict a gold medal,maybe 2 or 3 bronze.
Usa might get 15 gold's.:rollani:
I start with my prediction in team sports.
Women,big fav for the gold.
Men,not so strong as in past,a medal will be already very good,likely to be eliminated in the qf though.
Women:Russia is fav alongside Brazil in my opinion.
Men,Brazil likely will win,Russia will fight for a medal.
Women:Russia is behind usa and Australia,like in Greece i believe they will win the bronze.
Men,European champions surprising everyone last year,Russia will arrive to the last 8 and then everything can happen.
Only women, european champions and world league champions,Russia can win at least a medal if not the title.
Overall 6 medals,including two golds is my prediction for team sports.
Ah,looks like Russia have also a good beach volley couple now in male sector,vice world champions or something like that,maybe a medal is possible.
