OT- Olympic Golds. Take your pick

How many will NZ win?

How many will RSA win?

How many will Aussie win?

How many will Great Britain win?

My answers.

2,2,16,3.

I am picking an equestrian win for NZ, and either a boardsailing or
rowing win. I think Mr Carter will bum out in the triathlon and that
fatty discus thrower wont even get a metal. I also think the cycling
people will bum out. We wont get more than 5 and we may embarrass
ourselves and get zero...but unlikely.

The English will once gain prove themselves to be a pathetic sporting
nation.

Yep, Equestrian, Board sailing and rowing do offer some hope. We would
have to have a bit of a show in the Sailing, Bob.

Triathlon is very much an on the day thing.

Yea, would have to agree here, although the Road team did win the Tour
Of Aus.

Yea, 5 sounds right, but 7 or 8 wouldn't surprise. Especially if the
sailors go well.

Australia will do very well in the swimming and could easily pick up 10
to 20 medals in these events alone.

But Bobs,
England are not competing. Think you'll find its actually Great Britain.
Learn your geography and history. Preferably by calling the Scots, Welsh and
Northern Irish members of the squad English. Should get the lesson home
quickly.

Isn't England part of Great Britain?

Thanks for attempting a partially intelligent reply though.

Are Snooker and Darts Olympic events now?
No?
In that case, how will Britain secure even 3 medals in then?

Cheers,
Jeff.

I dont know. I would hope a country with 50m could actually find a couple
of decent athletes. Surely?

>How many will NZ win?

"Sports Illustrated" says four: the team three-day event, Blyth Tait in the
individual three-day event, Barbara Kendall in boardsailing, and Sarah Ulmer
in the points race.  They don't pick any NZ golds in rowing, just a silver for
Rob Waddell in single sculls and a bronze in the fours.

Quote:
>How many will RSA win?

SI is only picking them for one: Llewellyn Herbert in the 400m hurdles.
They're saying Heyns will lose to Quann in the 100 and Kowal in the 200 - I'll
believe it when I see it.

Quote:
>How many will Aussie win?

Cadel Evans in the mountain-bike race, women's field hockey, Tomkins/Long in
pairs rowing, Lars Kleppich in boardsailing, Nicholson/Phillips in the 49er
class, two for Ian Thorpe (200 free, 400 free), Grant Hackett (beating
two-time champ Kieren Perkins) in the 1500 free, Michael Klim in the 100 fly,
both 4x200 relays, Susan O'Neill in the 200 fly, Woodbridge/Woodforde in
tennis, Cathy Freeman in the 400m, Michelle Jones in the triathlon.  That's
... 16.

Quote:
>How many will Great Britain win?

Paul Ratcliffe in whitewater kayaking, Steven Redgrave gets his fifth in
fours, Jonathan Edwards in the triple jump, Simon Lessing in the triathlon.

Yep, the Aussies should pick up a record haul and maybe beat their
arch rivals and idols the USA for once.

I reckon if the Aussies don't get 60 medals then the games will be a
dismal failure for them.
