GB tipped for best ever winter olympics

Freestyle SkiingAccording to a statistical study by Infostrada Sports, Great Britain could be set for a record-breaking medal haul at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

They predict that Team GB will win six medals, including one gold, which would surpass their previous best ever Games haul.

This came in Chamonix in 1924 and if the prediction is correct it would certainly outstrip the last two Winter Olympics, when they picked up just one medal in Vancouver and one in Turin.

The study, based on recent results, predicts gold for Lizzy Yarnold and silver for Shelley Rudman in the skeleton, silver for the women and bronze for the men in curling, as well as bronze medals for freestyle skier James Woods and speed skater Elise Christie.

Six medals would place Great Britain 18th in the projected medal table, behind the Czech Republic and Italy, but above traditional Winter Olympics powerhouse Finland.

Norway are tipped to top the table.

Infostrada’s prediction for the 2012 London Olympics forecast 66 medals for Great Britain. The team went on to win 65.
