The Olympics 2: Predicting Olympic Medals

Goldman are now finally ready to unveil our predictions for London 2012. Table 3 (Above) shows their forecasts for medals in London 2012—gold on the left-hand side, and total number of medals on the right-hand side. In each case, they also show each country’s medal attainment in Beijing 2008, and the difference between the 2012 forecasts and the latter (a positive number means we expect the country to win more medals in 2012 than were attained in 2008).
