How Did We Do in Comparison to "Awesome America" Medal Forecast?
by Dr. Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D
During the upcoming 31st Olympiad, the US team should win more gold medals (40) WON 46 and more silver medals (60) WON 37 than any other. China will come in a close second, with 35 gold WON 26 and 45 silver WON 18. Like in 2012 in London when, for the first time, the US women won more medals than the men, the US women will again dominate. Katie Ledecky and Simone Biles will excel. Women did indeed dominated the Olympic games in Rio.
