    • Well I thought before the Olympics that Norway would go on to take a record number of golds. Turin was a disaster in Norwegian terms. As the most successful Winter nation of all time they always expect to finish in the top 3 at least, even though they enter with less than half the number of athletes that the larger nations enter. I think this Olympics has been one of the tightest ever in terms of the gold medal table.

      At this point it's hard to say who will win the gold table but one thing is for sure and that is the U.S will win the overall medal table. It would be interesting if Canada was really able to live upto the own the podium programme and they might well do it. With 3 strong gold opportunities up for grabs in the mens hockey and men's and women's curling also after just winning the gold in the women's Ice Hockey.

      I think the decider of who will win the most golds will come down to the Norway vs Canada men's Curling final. The U.S don't have many gold opportunities left in these games and neither do Germany but watch out for South Korea.
